    I've no idea. Very strange looking creature and don't think I've seen one before!

    can't say I have either, it really is a weird little chappy, stuck to the leaf, rather alien looking

    :) Well thanks Pete, how very helpful of you. Have you ever seen a 'Thing' before?

    You're most welcome Lulu. I have seen many such 'things' before...Unfortunately, mate - I've no idea what it is! :)

    Is it a ladybird grub turning into a ladybird?

    Yep it's a Ladybird pupa, could be a 7-spot ladybird I think but not 100%, just have to wait and see what it hatches into :lol:

    For a minute there i thought it was The Colorado Beetle post-4726-1246993519_thumb.jpg

    Thankfully it is probably not, British potato farmers would be very miffed indeed if it was.

    Looks like the new invasive ladybird species, the Harlequin Ladybird, which may be instrumental in forcing out several native British species.

    That does look more like it. Louby did you notice it rasing up when disturbed?
