Potted ladybird

Ladybirds are probably the only beetle that children instantly fall in love with. Avidly pursued on flowers and leaves and gently placing tips of fingers up to the fronts of this lovely spotted beetle to have it race up hands and onto arms. Feeling the pitter-patter of tiny, tickling black feet which brings out squeals of joy just as it has done for generation after generation. So with such nostalgia how could I resist the temptation of a pottery ladybird?
