16-spot Ladybird

Observation - 16-spot Ladybird . Description: A new species for me, I spotted this minute ladybird (approx 3mm)on a nettle leaf whilst I was walking though woods very close to my home. I read that it is described as a grassland species, but nettle is said to be one of its host plants.
