Cute Overload: Dog and Ladybug

I love it when insects appear at Cute Overload, the all-cute, all-the-time website! This entry shows a dog (of some kind) playing with a ladybug (it's an Asian Multi-colored Ladybug, by the way: you can tell from the upside-down "W" shape on the white part of the thorax). Oh, and there are TWO invasive species in the picture. Can you find both of them?



  1. Hmmm... maybe the dog has fleas, which would most likely be the "cat flea" species. Are those considered invasive?

  2. I was thinking of the lady beetle and the dog itself!
