Patricia has a lot to answer for. I saw her excellent photo and thought - I can do insects, I'll try for a shot of a flying ladybird. Well, I found one, we negotiated the deal, she showed me her right side, then her left. The came time to fly, but no. She hopped onto my camera (to check her shots so far?) She hopped onto my hand (the bottom two shots) but she wouldn't fly.
of course, the moment I got her back onto a plant - she nips off! I'll get her next time, (but I not sure I'me speaking to you Patricia - I've got a new obsession - LOL)
