Odd One Out

By Sturt_Photos
I was on a Baltic cruise and in Warnemunde, Germany there was an abundance of ladybirds. Unfortunately all the pavements were covered in tiny corpses and when thinking of animal lovers, the saying: 'don't look down' came to mind. Anyway, these ladybirds were a few of many on a wall next to a path leading to the lighthouse and I simply took the picture to show how many there were. when going through my pics of the holiday there were a lot of decent pics i thought of uploading and I couldn't choose so I did a bit of focal B&W and put this one on.

Three weeks ago i heard that there would possibly be a huge migration of the ladybirds from africa and that they could make it to the UK.
Not seen any huge numbers yet but there are more than usual if one looks in the right places.

This is a lovely image though, i love the arrangement of the bugs, nicely spaced out. The concept is good too, you done well in this regard.
My only criticism is the sharpness, it could be a fraction sharper, but thats easily fixed.

Very well done.
