Week 13- Fresh Kills Landfill, Staten Island

On April 27, 2023 at 9:38 am, I visited the Fresh Kills Landfill, on Staten Island. On this day, the weather was 53 degrees fahrenheit and it was cloudy with some sun and previously raining in the early morning. This picture was taken in the mound transects located in the middle of the landfill. This picture shows a Seven spotted lady beetle, also known as Coccinella septempunctata. Like their names says, seven-spotted lady beetles have seven black spots on their bright red or orange wing covers. They are small, rounded beetles that typically measure around 7 mm in length. The coloration and spotting pattern of seven-spotted lady beetles can vary, however, and some individuals may have fewer or more spots. Seven-spotted lady beetles are beneficial insects that are often used as a natural pest control method in gardens and agricultural settings. The seven-spotted lady beetles are also considered to be a symbol of good luck and are often featured in children's stories and folklore.
