Ladybug life cycle

Got to know what those tiny yellow eggs in my hops were, from my previous post. I isolated the eggs and witness the metamorphosis all the way until the new ladybug emerged. I was surprised since I had no idea that the ladybugs were laying those eggs. So what I thought was the ladybug eating the eggs, was actually then laying it in my hop leaves. Good to know that I have a renewing army of aphid fighters :-), which by the way, are very few right now.
