Two different morphs of Harmonia axyridis. Thought the black and red one was Chilocorus until I realized Chilocorus doesn't have white spots on its head.

Saw about 16 on the fennel at Radio Beach, from itty bitty 1st instars to big fat ones that looked ready to pupate. Didn't see any chrysalises.

Description

This bird was feeding at dusk, diving into the water from about 15 feet up and immediately flying away... Presumably after missing its prey. Two long talk feathers, and its head would hang down far below its wings as it searched for food.
