I've tried to find out what kind of ladybird this is. I've seen many but non of them matched this one.At first I thought it was the Asian Lady Beetle or Harlequin ladybird (Harmonia axyridis), but as it lack the 'M' on his head this is not this species.

The ladybird is the symbol of the Dutch Foundation Against Senseless Violence Vereniging tegen Zinloos Geweld, as can be seen in the logo

Hi Erik, mooi beestje. Is het nu al weer de tijd dat deze beestjes te voorschijn komen? Of isti van 2008?

Erik van den Ham on February 18, 2009

Nee hoor , heel erg 2008, maar ben toe aan het voorjaar en zomer dus vandaar dit uitstapje naar vorig jaar.

Na das ist doch was mitten im Winter, da bekommt man doch neue Hoffnung, dass auch der Schnee irgendwann mal wieder geht.

Grüße Stefan
