Ladybird buffs (I am not one) - we found this (what I assume to be a) ladybird on our kitchen door this morning. Having heard about the Harlequin invasion, I captured it and photographed it very badly, just in case it might be a sighting worth reporting. A quick internet check suggested it was probably an Orange, a native species which in my limited experience I have never seen before. Before I release it can anyone confirm? Any comments welcome.

I'll stick my neck out & confirm this as Orange Ladybird. Not aware of a Harlequin form like this.
