Ladybird, Ladybird

Star of nursery rhyme and toyshop, greenfly's terror and gardener's friend, few insects hold such a special place in our affections as the ladybird. Red or yellow, chequered, spotted or plain, this gaudy beetle has captured our imagination. This celebration of ladybirds follows their fortunes from the egg through all the trials of life, until they fly away home.

Narrated by David Attenborough.
