The Ladybird seduced man by its beauty and greed against aphids that eat his vegetable garden. It is the icon of biological control not to mention the sympathy engendered by her curves and bright colors.

This documentary tales this history the other way around, with humor: considering the Ladybird through the aphid's vision... Amazing!
