Default What do baby ladybugs look like?

For a week or two I had some strange bugs in my bathroom, they would
congregate on a wet towel left on the rack to dry.

They were black, with tiny illformed red spotches it seems. Since we had a
hoarde of ladybugs released by one of my neighbors, Im wondering if these
were in fact baby lady bugs?

They have not returned to the bathroom after than initial week or two, but
I've also noticed that the lady bugs have moved on to now that theres no
more aphids to eat in my garden.

Here's a site I found that has a good closeup
picture of a lady bug larvae. Do your bugs
look like this?

They are longer than adults, black and green. Really cool looking,
like little dragons.
