Hi I have now managed to get a fairly decent photo of the bug in question it is a little smaller that n a lday bird and looks like one but has not spots. These are prevalent her in the rice fields. I am assuming this is an aphid eater. could you tell me the name of the bug and let me know what it eats please.

Dear Louise,
We agree that this is a Lady Beetle, but we cannot provide species information.  Suspect most likely that it is a predatory species that feeds upon Aphids and other small insects.
