Lovely contrast between the sleek, shiny bug and the rough wood.

There's nothing wrong with archive diving Nathan, we can find some real treasures in there. I will be doing lots of it after next Thursday when surgery will prevent me from being able to wield the camera for several weeks.

Worlds in minature - perfect Grin The red of the ladybug and the bluey greens of the weathered paint work really well together, and the detail on the top of the post is like a mini mountain range Smile

Hope you blow your cobwebs away ... just remember that dark corners aren't dark anymore if you shine a torch into them. And walks in nature are excellent torches Smile
Lovely contrast between the ladybird and the wood and some great tones and textures. Smile

Excellent, Nathan. I love the contrasts between small/large & delicate/strong. The boys & I were just talking yesterday and saying we hadn't seen many ladybirds this year.

A wide expanse of flaking, textured wood but all eyes are fixed on the bright red of the ladybird. They go so well together xx

My thoughts exactly. I had to look at this one for a while to see how wrong I was with the Mountain range but what a super image Nathan. First class.
