Even when they are still it is hard to get a really satisfactory sharpness!

I have this theory that all bugs and beasties have a mysterious invisible field around their heads which is designed purely to mess up the focussing abilities of the camera - and operator!

Cracking shot !!.....well caught piece of action with lovely colours & clarity....impressive !.Smile

I'm surprised by the size of it's wings !!....perhaps twice the size of the red wing-cases, so
maybe they're folded up under the cases when not flying ???...fascinating !.Smile

Can't recall seeing an image on ePz before of one with wings extended - very well done.

It's interesting what Malc says. Personally, I have seen images of the ladybird in flight, and remember one by bricurtis HERE , and it's interesting that he says he was taking pictures of the ladybird when it suddenly flew off.
Though you say your shot wasn't by design, it's a good one with some fine definition, and movement in the wing is only to be expected. Well done. And please accept my Guest Editor Award for such an unusual image, albeit serendipitous.

Hello again and thank you all! Thank you too to Pamela, Keith, Ron, Michaelo, David and Umberto for your awards - all very much appreciated.

Fortunately I remember precisely where I saw this Ladybird and there were quite a few in that spot so next time I'm out for a walk I shall go and take another look.

Interesting to see your image Bri - I might try your approach next time ie 7fps or thereabouts. Now all I have to do is remember!

A belated thanks again everyone Smile I went Ladybird hunting again shortly after uploading this but didn't find anything exciting going on.

I've been along the bridle path quite a few times during these last few months and I'm tempted to say I find more variety within my little garden though of course enjoy the walks!
