A Science Lesson in the Front Yard

 Luke spotted this amazing site on our maple tree out in the front yard this morning.
A tiny ladybug....doing something??
After very close inspection, we realized we were watching a female ladybug lay eggs.
When it was first spotted, there were about 5 eggs, by the time she was finished she had laid 35 eggs.  Pretty amazing.
Guess what insect we are studying this week??
