Worth the climb.

By pentaxpatty
Good morning to everyone,
Well what can I say, except thank you to everyone for your votes and lovely kind words, the smashing awards too from
Peter, (mollycat). CarolG Richard (dickspics) Christine (cookie monster). Isabel (Igreengables) Kate (IrishKate) and a belated thank you to CarolAnn also to Nezih for their special awards too on the Gazania and buttefly photograph, you are all really so kind.

This is the same lady bird, I watched her for a while she was wanting to get to the top of the bud to eat some of the aphids, I wanted to bring her home, my poor roses are suffering this year from green fly, but hope some ladybugs will come and have a feast.

Have a good day today.

Love and light Patty xxSmileSmileSmile

Another excellent shot, Patty - the composition and depth of field, with the stem fading out into the top left corner, are excellent.
Thanks for the PM!Smile

There was finally a bud on top, and he found it!!! Your greenfly problem :- It is like that actor which dreamed when he built the baseball field in the middle of his maize field........ "build it....build it, and they will come ". And they finally did (heh heh) Love M&M

How did you know it was a 'she' Patty? Regardless of gender, you have done this Ladybird proud; so pleased s/he got the rewards.

your images synchronize well with your Buddhist and peaceful nature, Patty.. (for every such peaceful photographer - peaceful blackmailing is no harm in every walk of life.. women have used it very well.. a man always likes naughtiness and cleverness in every woman.. there's absolutely no harm on any quarter.. Grin and love and admiration grows more the more he sees it.. Grin )

I hope humor will be taken in a positive light.. Grin because there are many buggers here, who take things too seriously themselves, while at the same time advising others not to take anything too seriously.. Grin Grin Grin
