I had one this summer! A nice treat, and the first I'd seen. Even better, I had one twice-stabbed (black with two red spots, entirely black head) in early june on the bittercherry. And another the next day that was either a twice-stabbed or an inversly colored two-spot. It was black with two red spots, and the head had white markings. The spots weren't round, they were more of an inverted U shape. No pictures, unfortunately, just brief looks right before I had to leave for work. I looked around at other lady beetle pictures, but never found one that matched properly. -- Allyn Weaks email@example.com Seattle, WA Sunset zone 5 Pacific NW Native Wildlife Gardening: http://www.tardigrade.org/natives/ "The benefit of even limited monopolies is too doubtful, to be opposed to that of their general suppression."
