So many ladybirds we had to be careful not to tread on them. Mostly 7 spot. Saw quite a few that had been squashed :-(

I'm not convinced yet it's a harlequin as firstly quite small and secondly I'm sure I've seen these here in the UK since my childhood. I shall ask Harlequin survey or Opal for an id.

The left-most one on the picture I think is a harlequin ladybug, which is an invasive species here in the UK! They eat the larvae of other species. Ladybugs are called ladybirds in the UK as a quick clarification for others. If you want more info, check out the website for the harlequin ladybird survey:
