The third photo down is so similar to your original photo.
See original post
Fidget - I doubt the veracity of that photo ... it has been taken from the blog of a private individual posting from her New York garden ... she posted the photo with the caption
"Could these be ladybugs? These are the eggs on a leaf of the fig tree.
I feel responsible for them! I don't see any aphids. What will they eat? How will they survive? Should I make tiny ladybug bottles and go out there every fifteen minutes to give them a drink?"
Hardly a reputable source.
Now whenever you Google 'ladybirds' that photo comes up
We have to be very careful not to take stuff on the internet at face value ... we have to check the sources as much as we can ... not only is there Fake News, there's Fake Almost Everything
