|Whoops: looks as though a little decorating would be in order!|
I had begun to wonder when I would find my first Ladybird of 2016 so was particularly pleased to discover two on the door frame of my house. I had noticed one of them (unless it was a third) just below on a bush as I left for an afternoon appointment. On my return I got my camera and at first it seemed as though the Ladybird had gone ... but then I noticed not one, but two.
As before, I shall log them on the UK Ladybird Survey. They are both native 7-spots. I hope the weather will not turn too cold overnight as there are some chilly conditions forecast for some areas.
I have been looking through my Ladybird photos for unusual ones. I plan to post (or re-post) some of these in due course. Some of these insects are very colourful as you can see from the cover of this book about Ladybirds. I treated myself to a copy last year.
