Ladies Day

By Oliverpants
I spent a couple of hours yesterday in the glorious spring sun trying to get a shot of a ladybird on either a crocus or a snowdrop, but no they were everywhere but there. In the end I moved one, who played dead for about 10 mins, the promptly ran to the edge and flew away. Still here are the 2 shots I managed to get. Not brilliant, but I will get them one day.

Thanks to Ronnie for his award on my pastel hellebore yesterday and to Mandy for her award on leap beauty the day before.
