I've had a very busy day at work today, but around lunchtime there was a welcome distraction.
I was just wandering around; frankly, just having ticcing sort of time around my new office. Being reasonably sharp of eye I noticed a small black splotch moving on a window sill. I went in for a closer look, and was delighted to see that it was a native two spot ladybird, a species I haven't seen for a very long time.
Smaller than the native 7 spotter, and more importantly also the harlequin, the two spot is being threatened by these invaders who pray on its larvae. Thus having taken a few pictures I knew I had to get it outside as it would never have found its own way.
So, using a reward nomination card that we use at work, I picked it up - attracting a very dirty look from a senior manager as I did so - and took it to a sill outside hopefully protected from the rain.
It was worth it for a dirty look!
