Ladybug

Harmonia axyridis

Description:

Asian Lady Beetles of varying colors. All colorings were white black and red. Was very interested in the color variations of these two

Habitat:

West central ga. These two were found mating on a common field weed (weed yet to be identified).

Notes:

Weeks later several lady beetle larva casings were found on the same plant. This appears to be a favorable habitat for mating/maturing. If you look closely below the lady beetles it looks like there may be a lacewing egg sack on the same plant

@AshleyT Thanks so much for letting me know! :)Fingers crossed.
This same weed resulted in a place where I found multiple Lady bug larvae casings. Seems to be a popular plant.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
