How many bugs can you see? by gilbertwood

How many bugs can you see?

I was excited to find the ladybirds in my garden - first time! However they were there eating the the aphids. I had sprayed this swan bush weeks ago when I saw the aphids, but alas they and many other bugs have taken up residence! i don't want to harm the ladybirds so will just watch what happens :)
Too many to count, I hope you know the answer, the more you look the more you see, 200 at least, quite a variety. Great shot of those little beasts.

My goodness that is ALOT of aphids.....!!! The ladybugs usually do a good job so I hope they are hungry!

Wow, there is a lot going on there. I'm too lazy to count them, my guess is around 50 :)

Those ladybirds are going to have a real feast. I hope they spread the word among their friends. This is a wonderful clear close-up shot.

Great photo. Also check that any sprays won't harm the monarch caterpillars - years ago in NZ a spray was used that seemed okay for the caterpillars but then the chrysalises died or the butterflies were deformed :-(

Super close up capture.

@essafel Thanks for the info Sally. As I said I won't spray it now, but haven't seen a butterfly or caterpillar here yet.

@oldjosh @gigiflower @karlow75 @susiemc Yep! Way too many to count - and this is only a fraction of them! I think I'd need a plague of ladybirds to eat what is here :)

Wow, too many to count, but at a guess I would say almost a hundred.

Super details. Hope it all works out for you

Oh wow, what a great shot and so sharp. I don't know how many there are but it looks like the couple in the upper left is working on increasing the population.

Oh gosh a lot the lady bugs stand out the most especially the one on top of the other one, but I see lots and lots of little black bugs. Nice shot.
