    Hello jonathan, welcome to the forum. They are ladybird larvae and they are looking for aphids to eat  :)

    Little baby ladybirds  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Lucky you, they are ladybird pupa, from which adult ladybirds will emerge:
