Although I did take a photo of a black & orange bug sunbathing on a pub bench with 5 or 6 of its mates, whilst we were taking liquid refreshment on a rather warm afternoon whilst walking the dogs..... its on my phone so I found one on the internet.
and apparently its a Harlequin Ladybird larvae. Who knew they looked like that when they were 'little'!!!!
and this is what they look like when they're all grown up
all the above info was found at UK Ladybird Survey and no copyright infringement was intended.
I love ladybirds,but there never seems as many around as when I was little, some 35/40 years ago....
Anyhoo, on with the card making -
