This "attacker" was apparently trying to gnaw its way to the bone, luckily for me, unsuccessful. I of course risked life and limps to "capture" the assailant before I made my escape...

Comments etc appreciated

Oh and the ladybug has been manipulated into blue, just in case you didn't notice Smile

Great picture. The thumbnail was so intriguing I had to click it. Amazingly sharp under the circumstances.

You were extremely lucky to survive being attacked by one of these. They have been known to decimate whole herds of greenfly. Thanks for the laugh. Andy
