I live in the North East of England. I have a large garden for 7years now and it has taught me a lot! Learning all the time.

@solly1961 Hi Mark. I don't know the difference. Is this a bad bug or a good one? 😁

Thats a good bug 🐞, difficult to see all markings but looks like a seven spot native ladybird.❤

Harlequin ladybirds have 20+ colour variants, common ones in UK are orange with 15-21 black spots or black with two or four orange or red spots. Another spot check on harlequins is they have a white triangle centre of their heads.. Good luck.

Thank you Mark. I'll look closer but that was the first one I've seen in years! @solly1961
