We are lucky not to have to deal with many bugs in Seattle. Here’s one I caught in my so-called garden yesterday, though. I don’t have a close-up lens for my camera so it was hard to take a sharp picture of the tiny bug. Ladybugs belong to Coccinellidae, a family of beetles. In other parts of the world they are called ladybirds and in Afrikaans they go by liewenheersbesie which more or less translates back into English as ‘the dear lord’s little bug’. There you have it.
