Ladybirds of Gwent

Harlequin Ladybird (Harmonia axyridis)

Harlequin Ladybird - dark form

7 Spot Ladybird (Coccinella septempunctata)

24 Spot Ladybird (Subcoccinella vigintiquattvorpunctata)
It appears to be a very good year for ladybirds. These were just a few images of three common species encountered during my lunchbreaks in the Cwmbran area last week.
