Two-Spotted Lady Beetles

Above two pictures of same individual seen last week.
Another individual seen on May 3.
Last week, in same patch of milkweed as the first specimen seen above (in first two pictures.
Aphids, yum!

Only the last of these has two spots, but Adalia bipunctata also comes in a black-with-four-red-markings form.

    If these two morphs of the same species reproduce fo we get some black with red spots and some red with black spots like White-throated Sparrows or do we get variations on muddy brown with spots of varying size, location and color, like people?
