Caught this ladybird yesterday afternoon in the wildlife section of the garden ( well I call it a wildlife area...just means I haven't weeded it yet...Smile)
I was really pleased to get her along side the sharp stings that were making her navigate rather carefully.

Many thanks for looking all comments, critique, hints and tips are most welcome Smile

Cheers Ian

Bill's right, it's something to do with the angle but this has character.
Wildlife garden... I shall have to remember that, it sounds a good excuse for my sort of gardening.

Hi Ian this is a lovely macro shot of the dreaded Harlequin Ladybird - I'm doing my bit to let as many people as pos know about it and if you're interested you can participate in a survey - in the interest of the British Species the website is : harlequin-survey@ceh.ac.uk Cheers Ina
