16-spot Ladybird

I spotted (sorry, that was an accident!) this tiny (less than 3mm) ladybird nestled in our unused seed trays. He was pretty speedy but I managed to get this nice picture of him.

I posted the ladybird to the UK Ladybird survey site as I wasn't absolutely certain of it's identity - they confirmed it is a 16-spot (such helpful people!)

Please leave a comment. I'm very pleased to receive corrections or confirmations of my identification of the creatures we've spotted on the allotment.
