Spring Ladybirds

There have been quite a few ladybirds in my garden over the last couple of weeks, far more than last year in fact. Most are Seven-Spots but I have also seen a Ten-Spotted ladybird, something I've only ever seen on occasions. I've yet to see a Harlequin ladybird which is quite reassuring given how rapidly this alien invader seems to be overtaking the Seven Spot in many parts of the country.


Here are a couple of images of the Ten-Spotted Ladybird:

 and finally a mating pair of Seven-Spotted Ladybirds:
