Ladybug world

As mentioned the other day our bedroom had a massive (and fairly inexplicable) influx of ladybugs... possibly here for the winter, who knows?

This afternoon I ventured briefly into the garden (just to make sure that my legs still work after all that time in bed)... and there was an absolute plague of ladybugs all over the outside of the house. They were obviously enjoying the sun on the back wall of the house (which is painted white). I do not think it would be an exaggeration to say that there were probably at least 20 or so crawling all over that elevation.

But where are they going, and what are they doing... I'm afraid to say that I shall probably be finding their corpses next spring.
