Does any one know what this bug is called?
Might be a Cardinal beetle, but it seems we're looking at it from underneath and I'm not sure I've ever seen one from that angle!
Looks like a Cardnal beetle to me too - a definite goodie in the garden
Thanks for your replies. Here is another photo
Just found this on red solider beetles, looks like the same - http://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/common-red-soldier-beetle
