Well pleased Brian - I expected the Ladybird to be disappearing out of the edge of the frame. Nice to be lucky sometimes.Smile

Excellent Brian, a super, very well detailed close-up image, nothing wrong with a bit of luck, you have to be there to get it, I manage to get one similar this year, from the rear end and not of this quality, just sheer luck again.
