I searched for gray Lady Beetle with two black spots and came up with a sort of beige color with black spots or all black. I looked at a lot of images but didn't see one like this so I wonder. This is the first year i have noticed this little beetle in the garden. I also notice small white specks that are new to me, easily removable (but can't be blown off) on the leaves of different plants and i wonder if the two somehow are related? Thank you bug gurus.
