Orange Ladybird

Among other interesting things encountered last night was this new-for-the-reserve ladybird. New to me too, and a delight to see. I released it this morning.

Other small beasties encountered included the first Owl midge I have looked at under the microscope, a lovely Sciarid fly fungus gnat (try Dynatosoma fuscicorne) that I am cautiously optimistic about, and a small green bug that I also ought to be able to get close on.
