An odd (for me) lady bug, looks like a "dalmatian" ladybug. Usually I see red ladybugs, but the only I see white is this one, I think a pale version of Harmonia axiridis a foreign species, introduced some years ago. You can compare seeing a multiple image composition about this species un my gallery, uploaded some months ago.
Thanks for viewing and comment

Hi Hernan,
It is a bit different the bug I shot and mine one was a little shy but this looks much bold,

Hernan, this is a very interesting bug! I didn't know ladybugs came in any other color but red and black. I love the composition of this - the bg and leaves make the bug stand out so well. But I also see it has a follower...a tagalong, if you will, of the same green color, just above and to the left of him. I think it wanted to get in the shot as well.
Best - Penny

Ciao Hernan,
bella cattura di coccinellide, è la prima volta che la vedo con questi colori, ottimi POV e composizione, buona nitidezza (si vede bene anche il piccolo afide), belli i colori.
TFS. Maurizio

Hi Hernan,
How interesting to see this pale ladybug. And the aphid as well.
Very sharply captured. Good colours and details
Well done

Hello Hernan,

Nice composition. Good picture of this ladybird. You may be right with you ID. That is not a colour of ladybird that we can see every day. Good exposure and natural colours.

Great job on this Hernan,
These ladybirds highly reflective wing-covers can be problematic.
Nice detail, color, and I enjoy this comp also. Don't remember ever seeing a white one before..
Well done,

Hi Hernan.
I have never seen such species. What a cute creature of wonderful macro shot. Excellent scene at whole, perfect details (even of tiny aphid), lights and colours. Well done and TFS.
