Fly away home, ladybug!
Recently, I watched a video that showed a ladybug taking flight.
I’m not sure how I’ve survived this long in the Internet Age without seeing a video of a ladybug flying, but it’s incredible and crazy.
Like, really, really crazy—the video was a NOVA episode talking about origami patterns in nature. (You can see a little bit of it on YouTube here.)
Is is just me--or have you never seen before how a ladybug’s wings fold up under their shell?
I think I've seen them folding their wings up again after a flight, but...wow!
Seeing that video inspired me to draw a ladybug.
I played around with the image, tried a new style, and used the image to create a printable coloring page so that you can color your own ladybug too.
Here you go!
And do let me know what you think!
