Southern Marsh Orchids

Noticed a lot of Harlequin ladybird larvae in the garden recently, so put one in a pot to see what would happen. Quite an interesting transformation during the first couple of days and then the wait for the ladybird to emerge. Doesn't yet have the bright red case and the spots are barely visible, but I assume it will get there soon.
