Keiki and the ladybird
Keiki found a ladybird in the garden, and it stayed to play with him for twenty minutes or so, crawling up and down his arm and occasionally flying down to his foot.

I haven't seen any of those yet this year. However, I was harassed by a wasp today. I really hate those things. On a scale of one to ten, I think ladybirds are almost infinitely better than wasps!

Agreed. Wasps are unwelcome garden visitors.

There was quite an infestation of wasps at Island of Punk on 11th August, and I spent about half of the event trying to run away from them, which of course is a physical impossibility. I don't think autumn and winter have much to recommend them in general, but at least the chances of being harassed and stung by wasps are minimal!

:) Keiki's current favourite story is The Bad-Tempered Ladybird. He knows it off by heart.

He thinks all the garden creatures are his friends. Except for wasps.

He was so happy about it, and kept up a non-stop one-sided conversation with the ladybird.

Yes, it was very sweet to watch him interacting with it.
