Ladybird behaviour

Observation - Ladybird behaviour. Description: Last September, I saw this 7-spot ladybird in process of enveloping (over two days) what appears to be a prey item. My knowledge of ladybird prey had hitherto been confined to aphids. Image 1: 21/09/2010; Image 2: 22/09/2010; Image 3: 11/08/2010
