Basically Bugs

Why not have a thread for Beetles too? So, who is this little critter? I found two of them on the dried out runner bean pods.

    Well done on the ID Wendy, & good idea for thread MC but you'll have to change it to Basically Bugs as Shieldbugs aren't Beetles!! LOL

    Best wishes

    I found a lot of ladybirds on the pavement outside the College this afternoon. Mostly they were 'standard' markings, but this one stood out. Can anyone ID it?

    Just bumping this back up for an ID;    I'm not sure what it is Paul but could be a Harlequin which are on the increase.   Hope the experts can come up with the ID for you.
