Home Patch: Harlequin Ladybird

This is the first Harlequin Ladybird (or Ladybird of any kind for that matter) for weeks, possibly since 9 August. I wonder if I have been missing them or whether there have been very few around. This one was walking along the frame of our French window yesterday.

As usual, I have logged it on the Harlequin Ladybird Survey site. I think it is Harmonia axyridis spectabilis.

I have been looking for ladybugs since i was inspired by my spotting of the testudinate one (your adjective), that i asked you for help, but haven't found anything also. But of course i am going home only on some weekends, but not all weekends, so maybe they are just around or I missed them. I hope to still find some again.

I haven't seen any at all for MONTHS. What a lovely picture. To be honest, all I've seen are fast moving spiders inside and the odd fox moth caterpillar outside recently. I'm getting a bit desperate!
