The Ladybird Party

Something odd was happening on this day.
A congregation of ladybirds gathering on the stump of the tree.
I wonder why that may be?
There was nothing there to fancy or see.
All they were doing was sitting right on that tree.
There was no food or be gained.
Strange things happen and these many ladybirds happen to decide that a party was in order.
How many do you see? 
Can you count them?

Generally ladybirds (or sometimes called ladybugs, ladybeetles) eat other insects in the garden such as the abhorrent aphids. Only some eat plants making for the most part a welcome addition to any garden in order to ward off pests.
