The Grouchy Ladybug

A ladybug challenges another ladybug to a fight because she doesn't want to share her aphids. But before the fight begins, she decides the ladybug she challenged isn't big enough to be worth her time. She goes off and challenges all kind of animals to a fight, until she meets a blue whale, who slaps her back to her starting point. She sees the same ladybug she had challenged before, but this time with a new perspective.
