There are actually two different species of Lady Beetle here! The first picture is a Seven-spotted Lady Beetle, Coccinella septempunctata. http://bugguide.net/node/view/3543

The second picture is a Multicolored Asian Lady Beetle, Harmonia axyridis. http://bugguide.net/node/view/397

These should be split into two separate spottings so they can be identified appropriately.
