My first.....

By KKmoments
...ladybird..... I've been waiting all summer to see one and hey presto sunday afternoon there were loads flying around at Charlecote Park in Stratford... trouble was battling the breeze and the hive of activity.... this one was actually taken crawling up the stem of a flower so I flipped it on the horizontal and left the 'flower petals' in to add colour.

Many thanks for viewing and hope you all enjoyed our lovely sunshine yesterday.
