I was sitting in the car with the window open when I felt something fall down my blouse. It was a lady bug. Her legs were tight up against her body and she wasn't moving. I sat there holding her and looking at her for about 4 minutes then she suddenly got up. She wandered around on my hand and shirt, but she seemed a bit out of it. I know they eat aphids, but I gave her a crumb of cookie. She sat there with her mouth attached to it for the longest time. I couldn't tell if she was eating or not. After about 15 minutes she seemed steady on her feet. I put her and her crumb on a leaf and drove away.
She needed a safe place and I just happened to be there at the right time. There has to be a word for that, but right now I am drawing a blank.
