Two bugs (and a Harlequin) under a Sycamore leaf

Observation - Two bugs (and a Harlequin) under a Sycamore leaf - UK and Ireland. Description: The Harlequin Ladybird* was seriously and visibly damaged but still able to move (Image 3). The bug is almost certainly Deraeocoris lutescens - a known predator (cf. entry in British Bugs Gallery – Miridae) *Harmonia axyridis var succinea. See Comment
