Newly hatched ladybugs squirming about. Notice the size compared to the small toothpick prodding them. The mother laid the eggs on the underside of a Shasta Daisy leaf. My children brought them inside and we watched them daily until the yellow eggs started to turn greyish in color.

The yellow ones have just barely emerged from their eggs, the darker ones have been out for about 30-60 minutes.

We got good close-up views using a 10x-21mm jeweler's loop. I used a Blackberry Playbook with the jeweler's loop in front of the lens to record the HD Video.
