Great closeup detail John. Were these recent, how did she survive the frigid temperatures?

Very good,John. Would you know if this is one of the aggressive invading species that has the entomology world concerned ?

I think it's the common 7 spotted which has been around for a long, long time. I'd be concerned, if I was an aphid ...

Thanks very much Guys. Richard, I have no idea. John, you mean the Harlequin... I did have one of those around here sometime in September I think, but they have a lot more spots.
