    Is that a lady bug? I’ve not heard it called a Halloween bug before. Maybe they are different, but look the same. Anyway, great photo and happy GTS,

    Nice outfit. A little late for Trick-or-Treating though isn’t he?

    Aiyana, the Halloween bugs look like ladybugs, but are more orange than red and not as friendly. They’re some kind of invasive species from Asia.

    Stuart, yes…just a little late!

    Captain Lifecruiser, she’s not so scary, really…

    Blueblue, you’re totally right.

    Reddnas1, happy GTS to you, too!

    In the UK we call them lady birds. Is it on a brassica plant?

    Sara, it’s on one of the types of greens I have in my garden — I think maybe the collards?
