|2013: My second 7-Spot |
(Coccinella 7-punctata),seen on the same gorse bush
|You can see the proximity of the Ladybird and the Gorse Shieldbug ...|
|... and here's a close-up of the Gorse Shieldbug.|
I spotted a nymph Shieldbug in the same area last year in August; you can see it here.
I am sending details of the Ladybird sightings to the UK Ladybird Survey. Please do the same if you encounter these insects here in the UK.
