Lovely warm afternoon, and for the 2nd day running (Fairburn, yesterday) I observed another "eruption" of this species. This time on a very tall, strongly sunlit, metal railway floodlight. There were scores of them, I was amazed by the variety of colours and numbers of spots. Sad, however, that they are probably out-competing our native species.
Equipment: Canon 7D mkII 100-400 mkII.

I found an "eruption" of this invasive species on a strongly sunlit tree. Known in North America as the "Halloween Lady Beetle". Don't be surprised if finding one in your home this weekend!
