Black Ladybug with No Spots


Today I saw something I'd never seen before...a black ladybug with no spots.
When I was in Holland, I saw a black ladybug with two red spots...which was pretty cool, but I've never seen a pure black ladybug here in Ontario in all my years.

Luckily I had my camera nearby, so I photographed the bug. We were cutting down our old, 50 year old apple tree in the backyard today....so I suspect the ladybug was one of the tree's inhabitants.
Sadly, the tree had to go. It was dead in a lot of places and it dropped rotting apples everywhere attracting Yellow Jackets....my least favorite insect!

I have a Chow Chow dog who saw a bug that looked just like this on my balcony (in Chicago) today. When he sniffed it, it pinched/grabbed his lip.

Wonder what this is???
