Cemetery Bugs

There is a large cemetery nearby and today me youngest daughter came with me and decided to have a bug safari. It was the first visit in the year that I have taken many more invertebrate than bird photos.
A pine Ladybird on orange lichen, Xanthoria parietina 
A group of the blind millipede Blaniulus guttulatus, with Porcellio scaber and a while slug under a piece of wood
A colourful cluster of Harlequin ladybirds appeared to have emerged from a crack in a damaged tree and some were flying off
Peacock sunbathing
A carpet of Lesser Celandines
Flowering Willow
Harlequins and Amaurobius (with nests?) under broken headstone.
