The ladybird, like most beetles, has two sets of wings.
The front wings are called the elytra. They don't move when a ladybird is flying. Then they have the long hind wings which unfold when a ladybird flies.
The wings flap quickly from front to back, at a speed of 85 times every second.
When the ladybird lands, the wings fold neatly back underneath the elytra.
