Ladybug on Forsythia

I saw this ladybug on some forsythia flowers yesterday. I don't really think of these as pollinators since they eat aphids, but on purpose or by accident, he had acquired a lot of pollen on his back. You know it is spring when you start seeing insects and forsythia flowers.

  1. I was wondering about possible pollination from ladybugs today. They are hanging out with my pepper plants and are welcome considering their taste for aphids. But, what about cross pollination?
