Photo: Ladybird on the broad beans, coming to the rescue! Aphids, beware!
Photo: Ladybird, ant and aphids (the black mass)
Photo: Ant climbing over it, not sure whether it is trying to attack or just scare off the ladybird
Photo: Yum - dinner!
Photo: Just like me and a box of chocolates! Which one shall I choose?
Photo: Ladybird eggs, soon to turn into larvae which will eat the aphids too
Photo: A young bean pod, covered in aphids. Luckily it's not the pods that I want to eat, but the beans inside which are well protected.
