Ladybirds

Coccinellidae is a family of beetles, known variously as ladybirds (British English, Australian English, South African English), ladybugs (North American English) or lady beetles (preferred by some scientists). Lesser-used names include ladyclock, lady cow, and lady fly.

They are small insects, ranging from 1 mm to 10 mm (0.04 to 0.4 inches), and are commonly yellow, orange, or scarlet with small black spots on their wing covers, with black legs, head and antennae. A very large number of species are mostly or entirely black, grey, or brown and may be difficult for non-entomologists to recognize as coccinellids (and, conversely, there are many small beetles that are easily mistaken as such, like tortoise beetles).

Coccinellids are found worldwide, with over 5,000 species described, more than 450 native to North America alone.

A few species are pests in North America and Europe, but they are generally considered useful insects as many species feed on aphids or scale insects, which are pests in gardens, agricultural fields, orchards, and similar places. The Mall of America, for instance, releases thousands of ladybugs into its indoor park as a natural means of pest control for its gardens.

Information

A follow up to my previous demo but this time only one image is required. Move the mouse over the image above to see it 'zoom' in size.

Works after a fashion in all browsers but better in some than others. Believe it or not, IE7 and IE8 give the best zoom as you will only need to touch the edge of the picture to have the image zoom to full size. Firefox has the smoothest zoom but you need to keep the mouse moving across the image. IE6 is the worst and Safari(PC) and Google Chrome do not always zoom correctly.
