Another amazing shot - I've never seen the "inside" of a ladybird - thank you for allowing me to see one! Smile

Getting sharp focus on one in a macro is excellent but 3 subjects is impressive, fine work Brian,

SUPERB in every way: until recently I had never seen a ladybird's structure under the wing casings such as demonstrated here in your shot.

Superbly timed and captured Brian - the detail of the unfurling wing on the Ladybird about to take off is fantastic. I have never seen anything like it before. Wonderful colours and light too. Just love those lime green bg tones.
