If you don"t think mother nature is awesome, then you haven"t really studied lady bugs in super slow motion.

Lady bugs always remind me of the beach.

One time I was there with my friend and something was off with the ecological system, because the place was swarmed by lady bugs. Walking down on the sand, dead in the surf, in the cabin...

The next year the place was covered by ants. I hate ants.

Reminded me of a droideka from the star wars prequels. Minus the blasters of course.

Would`ve liked to see it in real time too. And yes, I`m aware that`s probably less then a second. That`s why I wanted to see it.

A bit... too slow. Actually.

I want to see how the wings go back in... They sort of fold out, but it doesn`t seem to affect flight... hm.

Ah, Norris, that brings back the memories. n.n I want more information on the crack spider`s bitch.

Never realized how big their wings are compared to their bodies. I`d much rather see how it gets those big wings back under it`s shell.

That was like watching a ladybug spread its wings and fly in slow motion... oh wait, it was!
A bit too slow, yeah, and it was more awkward than kickass o.o and what a shiny shell.

Did it gyro-fly or bird flap fly? I kinda say Bird fly for the first few flaps then gyro-fly at full wing-beat-span...

Ladybugs are cute, but you have to catch and squash millions of them to make polka-dot paint...

All together now...

As for lady bugs they`re always just those things you and your friends find that play with for like 10 minutes and you just want to go about your day and leave them alone but your dumber friend kills it somehow and gets sad afterwards. and as for pokemon I`m down with metagross.

This lady bug in slo-mo allows one to see that the scientific exploration, and practice, of human aviation will be forever analogous to the wonderment/mystery of insect and avian flight!

I attended science camp in 6th grade at Lake Arrowhead in California, and during a hike through the woods, a massive swarm of thousands of ladybugs were attacking the group (ladybugs actually have a sharp little bite), and one girl was bit so many times by the ladybugs, she fell down on the spot and had a seizure. Ah, memories.

A lot of ladybugs come into my room during the end of summer, and I`ve never smelled anything bad from them ^^

when they land you actually see that their wings are longer then the shell. en then they retract them slowly

I love ladybugs. I had one that stayed with me for hours when I was a kid. I was really sad when she finally flew away. They do smell terrible though.

Ugh... I hate ladybugs.

The wings looked like something crawled out of the ladybug.
The wing movement was interesting though.
