Daydreaming about Ladybirds

November and not a ladybird in sight. The cold November weather has arrived and the pretty ladybird is hibernating. And somehow, the things you cannot see quickly becomes more interesting!

The slow motion video below of a ladybird taking off provides you with an opportunity to slow down. Being mindful is to slow down and observe rather than being on autopilot.

See how the ladybird fold out and back its wings. The wings are hidden under their elytra, which are hard and shell-like. There are many different types of ladybirds, but the most famous has a red elytra with back spots.

The blog post Design a Helmet inspired by Ladybirds provides you with an idea to use your understanding of the ladybird to invent something interesting.

Slow down, observe and enjoy!
