The Ladybug wears no disguises. She is just what she advertises. A speckled spectacle of spring, A fashion statement on the wing…. A miniature orange kite. A tiny dot-to-dot delight.
J. Patrick Lewis, “The Little Buggers”

The ladybug’s a beetle. It’s shaped like a pea. Its color is a bright red With lots of spots to see. Although the name is ladybug Some ladybugs are men. So why don’t we say “gentleman bug” Every now and then?

How brave a ladybug must be! Each drop of rain is big as she. Can you imagine
what you’d do, If raindrops fell as big as you?
Aileen Fisher

The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.
