Multi Coloured Asian Ladybird
We have loads of these, one on each leaf of the tree outside our back door. They are turning into ladybirds. I had thought they were caterpillars!!
I spotted one on our bookshelves last night. I caught it in between my palms, carried it outside while it bounced around inside the space I made for it, then it hopped away across the gravel once I had released it.
Many thanks to Hagbourne Wildlife for posting about these.
I saw a couple of little birds with vivid colouring at the other end of the village.
