Ladybugs

The bright colouring of ladybirds — red or yellow with black spots has a protective function, preventing predators such as insectivorous birds, ladybugs have a very unpleasant taste. If you touch a ladybug, it will allocate a drop of bitter, acrid fluid from leg joints and other parts of the body. This fluid is usually yellow, stains the hand and leaves the skin with an unpleasant smell for a long time.
