Halloween Invaders.

I believe this is a Harlequin Ladybird, which is an invasive species in the UK. They are called Halloween Ladybugs in some parts (I guess because they are most numerous around now).
As it is Halloween, I thought I would post them today. John

  2. Cute little bugs, bet they can be annoying when 1000s of them invade.

  8. I believe that these are considered to be a threat to our native species, so (for once) I can honestly say that I'm pleased that I've not seen one yet. Great images, John!
