Black-Ringed Ladybird

This miniature ladybird (about 5mm long) landed on my future daughter-in-law's hand in Cape Town's Company Gardens. I took the opportunity to photograph it. It is called (no surprise) the Black-Ringed Ladybird, or Oenopia cinctella. It is carnivorous, which means that it feeds on other bugs.
