Cow parsley, 25 April 2014

In the botanical garden on 25 April 2014, there was not just the prehistoric plants exhibition. Also many living plants, like this cow parsley.

Cow parsley and ladybug, 25 April 2014

It attracted a ladybug. A pine ladybird. This species was named by famous naturalist Linnaeus in 1758. Linnaeus had visited this botanical garden. I don’t know whether this beetle species already lived there then; and if so, whether it then was the inspiration for Linnaeus naming it.
