Ash grey lady beetle

An ash grey lady beetle in the Big Island of Hawaii.

I’ve always thought of lady beetles as little red creatures with black dots on their backs. So I was enlightened to see this one, also known as the ashy grey lady beetle (Olla v-nigrum). Apparently, this species can also have a completely different coloring. I learn something every day!
