Question 18 – Ladybird or Ladybug ?

What do you call these little creatures?

I went out to my kitchen tonight at 7pm, and there was this little guy (so why do we allocate them female titles?) sitting on my tap spout.  When you look at them up close they have a fierce expression on their “face”.

I rescued him off the tap and put him on my parsley (just hope I don’t forget and eat him tomorrow).

    Definitely ladybug! Although Im sure the male of the species are unimpressed with that title!

      Yes, it’s funny isn’t it. I almost always say ladybird, but then sometimes I say bug, maybe its’s the slightly darker ones I call bugs, and the brighter ones are birds.
