A Lady Beetle Identification Key and BTW ….. Happy National Insect Week June 23rd -29th!

A Lady Beetle Identification Key and  BTW ..... Happy National Insect Week  June 23rd -29th!

Well, those people in the UK are at it again ! First it was “Be Nice to Nettle Week ” and now it is officially ” National Insect Week” with the tag line ” little things that run the world” . Hey ! if you don’t believe me just check out http://nationalinsectweek.co.uk/. This may not be the best picture of this critter I have taken, but it is the most complete one I have in terms of identification. I originally thought all you had to do to ID a Lady Beetle was to count the spots …. but there is a bit more to it than that ! A click on the picture will take you to a really interesting visual based ID guide.
So what type of Lady Beetle is this anyway ?
