Came across this hibernating harlequin ladybird at work today. I doubt it will be able to sleep here on a window sill regularly patrolled by our cleaners, but I hope it can find a quiet spot.
A passing Polish girl said "Don't they live for the number of years as they have spots?" - I told her if that was true this ladybird was going to live a very long time!
