A fabulous macro Brian, to catch the two ladybirds on the snowdrop was a real bonus. I think we can safely say that there won't be many ladybirds on snowdrops this February unless the weather starts to warm up considerably!

The strong contrast between the white and red make for a striking image.

Fantastic, Brian, somehow I can't see the ladybirds making an appearance this February, judging by the weather this morning Sad Carol
