The dof is excellent, Carole, and the ladybird really stands out on the white/green. Lovely image.

I have mentioned on here before Carole,
they used to be a regular sight in my garden,
but I must have upset them as they stay away now !!
A well coloured shot.
Good one.

This is so beautiful. And I love the thought of a ladybird having a sleep on a flower.
