Bug-a-day #2 – Ladybird

Still in keeping with the “dewdrop” obsession, I snapped this little group of ladybirds having a get-together. Quite frankly, the little blighters are everywhere at the moment! And if I never see another one, it’ll be too soon!

(Unless, of course, I could just capture one in flight ….. Hmmmm)

  1. Thanks for another successful ladybug photo shoot! Interesting shot due to the tension between the various textures, reds vs. neutrals, and live little ladybugs and whatever the less alive-looking stuff is (old bloom/ seed pod?) 🙂

  2. This is so amazing. Gosh … I HAVE to get a macro lens. I love this.

  3. Great capture, Alice.

  4. Love those bugs, Alice!
    When we were in China on the Great Wall (as the only American tourists in that area,) a lot of the people on the wall were scared of the hundreds of ladybugs visiting the wall that day too. Can only guess that they had never heard of the American belief that ladybugs are considered “lucky”.

    • If you want to think they’re lucky, you keep right on thinking it! Personally, they’re only good for eating the greenfly and aphids off the roses. But as it’s a bit early for roses yet, they’ve taken to multiplying to pass the time instead!

    The name of your blog is one of the best I’ve encountered! Well done, you:) Love the bug-a-day…..

    • Thanks for the accolade! I’m flattered …
      Not sure how long the bug-a-day idea will last, but it’s a bit of fun trying to get something to stay still long enough to take its picture!
