Bug Hunt

Hello everyone. I took a moment this evening to go out into the garden to see what bugs I could spot. I was amazed at all the beautifully coloured critters I found, but I am slightly ashamed that I have no idea what most of them are. Can anyone help identify the bugs from these pictures to help educate my ignorance? Thank you.

    The 166.6K picture is a crane-fly and a ladybird larvae.  Cant see the crane-fly close enough to judge which type.

     

    The 136.1K picture is a emerging ladybird as is the 119.4K picture.

     

    The 116.3K picture might be a sawfly, but agian I cant see enough detail sorry.

        Glad it's sparked an interest for you.  If you have a smartphone you could look at the iRecord Ladybirds app which has a wealth of information regarding the different types of ladybird both via a gallery and lists of facts.  They dont cover larvae though.

         

        I've just found an Asparagus beetle in my garden - never even heard of it until I attempted to id what I'd just found.
