Lady of the night

By Paul_Iddon  
There's no reason as to why a ladybird should have appeared in the darkness of my garden this late in September - but none the less, there she was, as I was out looking for spiders...
Just to set the scene - after finding her and taking the first photos where I spotted her - the resulting images against a deep dark black background from using flash at night was not overly appealing to me, so I decided to create a quick outdoor studio by plucking the leaf where she was standing, relocating it, and adding a printed background to match her colours.
