Spotted the first ladybird in my garden this afternoon - orange with plenty of spots, but not a harlequin I don't think. Seems to small for that, so I'll suggest it's the 14-spot, [I]Propylea 14-punctata[/I]...
The first image is the one when I spotted her, and was with the Canon 100mm IS L lens, the following three were the closer photos using the LAOWA Venus 2:1 macro lens.
You can she's making her escape in the last after being pestered by the maniac 'tog in the middle two!
