And thank you for your kind words regarding this spotting! @ Gilma, ye, that looks a bit funny, did not think of that before :)

Thank you for the ID Jakubo! I really appreciate it! It must have been quite tricky since information about this ladybug is hard to find (and pictures as well). Funny how the rarest things can be the one closest to you.... (in the garden)

Beautiful! So well dress, in picture # 3 it looks as if there is a bow tie in the neck?! : o
