Here's another surprizing little pow-wow I came across in our garden. I found these bugs all piled up like this on my rounds of the garden.
Soon as I showed up they started to dispurse in a hurry; your typical "Oh shit, it's the cops! Run!" move.
I showed these photos to my uncle, and he reckons they're a type of ladybird (ladybug to Americans) but I haven't been able to find a satisfactory identifying photo online just yet.
They're quite beautiful, but I have a feeling they're not the helpful kind of ladybird... I think they're the ones who've been putting all those holes in the leaves!
