First Lady (Coccinella septempunctata)

By Paul_Iddon  
Two ladybirds arrived in the garden today and this is one of them, a 7-spot lady. On the twiggy part of the apple tree here, looks like she is washing her antennae. Despite the sunlight the shutter speed was slow due to using extension tubes and a bit of DoF.

Came out quite well though I think.

C&C as always.
