That's fascinating. Didn't know they did that.

Is it because ladybugs are not good to eat?

Ladybugs taste bitter, a bird told me. :P

The golden ones (Charidotella sexpunctata) pump liquid into their elytrae to change color.

The adults are weird:

And the larvae even more so:

That's an amazing little chemical factory. Take what is essentially sugar water and turn it into wax.
Back in my bee keeping days I would tell visitors (inaccurately) bees take a carbohydrate and turn it into a hydrocarbon.

Some years ago I saw a buck deer masturbating. I was 12 ft. up in a tree stand with my rifle ready to go. I could not in good conscience shoot a bud having a wank.

Nice ant head. Looks metallized, so I presume it's electron microscopy.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
