    10 spot ladybird, seemingly very variable as to the colours. The shield bug is Pentatoma rufipes a shield bug. Ispot is brilliant.

    it is commonly known as a sloe bug as it usually feeds on sloe bushes, not because it does`nt move fast.Indeed the ladybird is a ten spotter differing from similar species by it`s light coloured pronotum.
