Given that ladybirds/ladybugs are considered to be “Any member of the family Coccinellidae,” there’s a huge degree of variation in what they look like. Worldwide, there are over 5,000 species, and there are over 450 species in North America, alone.
One of the most well-known Coccinellids is known as the Harlequin ladybug, Japanese Lady Beetle, pumpkin ladybird, or Asian Lady Beetle, depending upon your locality. Harmonia axyridis is orange-yellow with between 0 and 22 spots, and is considered an agricultural pest in many areas. I remember them absolutely covering the entire south side of my childhood home, and not being able to get inside without going through the stink-mess.

Chemical reaction between copper (the coil) and silver nitrate dissolved in water. The silver reacts with the copper coil and grows crystals around it. The reaction is instantaneous and very pretty. The blue color of the water is a result of the copper nitrate released in the reaction.
