Many photographs of ladybugs have bright burnt out spots on the shells where the sun is reflected. If you compensate for that in camera you get a dark shot with a lot of noise. You can paint the spots away, which I have done in one shot here, but the spots are natural and arise from the bright sun. So if possible shoot on a cloudy day or not under direct sunlight. Whether they are mating or not has nothing to do with the spots.
