Just Helping to Keep the Aphids Away

This little Harlequin Ladybird is doing her part in my daughter's garden and helping Mother Nature by keeping the aphids off the Swiss chard.  The ladybird is most commonly seen in the US in red and known as a ladybug.  However these beneficial little ladies like to dress for work in more than one color.

Li-it is said that finding a ladybug is good luck and for the Swiss Chard it is good to have them around.
