Kidney-spot Ladybird - Chilocorus renipustulatus

By Mendipman  
Amazes me how many different species of ladybird there are in the garden and it's not very big. Nine currently of which I've managed to photograph six. Most of the ladybirds are actually very small, about 5mm or so and this one is no exception.

Reminds me of Darth Vader for some reason!
