It's a lady bug
Thanks for advice.
This species is highly variable. Some specimens have no spots. Some have about 15 black spots. Some are black with red, wavy lines across the back. The markings on the pronotum (top of thorax, which is black and white in this picture) are more consistent, which is how I ruled out other species.
