Small Ladybird but not sure what species. Thanks.
No interactions present.
There are three species that look a bit like this including the kidney, but I think that this is one of the other two.
Why not try out the iSpot key to ladybirds which you will find here:
I have just keyed your specimen out successfully, but I won't spoil your fun by giving you the answer! Try it. It will only take a couple of minutes.

I checked out the link and I too got Pine Ladybird.
Please could you check out my most recent posting about a strange critter found on a Pine branch - I am very intrigued to know what it is!
Good to know that the key works.
I see that others have already helped you with your other observations. Great!
