I found this tiny creature in my garden. I wonder if it's a Ladybug?

Thanks for your confirmation.

This doesn't look like any type of ladybug I have seen in the northern U.S. Perhaps it is another kind of beetle. I believe that ladybugs have a black head. The head and eyes of your insect do not look typical.

Thank you Sprout. It clearly looks different from a Ladybug.

I wonder what it is and whether it's a friend or a foe!

It appears to be about the right size and shape. Check out the link below. Apparently they don't all have spots.
And this site has more identifying information that might be useful:

Hi Xuan,

It looks to me to be Rodolia pumila, a kind of Ladybug. -It is a good guy.
