In November 2010 I posted a picture of an Elevenspotted Ladybird. These are common throughout New Zealand. The Twospotted Ladybird (Adalia bipunctata) is, according to Andrew Crowe common in Southern New Zealand. This was taken at The Cottage so it would appear to have spread its wings so to speak. I've discovered that trying to hold a camera completely still and focus the macro with one hand when an insect is on the other is not easy especially when, as in this case, it kept turning away and wouldn't keep still.
