I love ladybirds – ladybeetles – ladybugs, whatever you wish to call them. Sadly, they seem to be quite sparse in our gardens this year so finding one (let alone two) is a great thrill for me for these days :o)

    This is not only a highly detailed macro image Renee but so special with the two ladybugs nestling together under that bloom, I almost feel like I’m interupting something or was that you,lol., super detail and colours, well done indeed,
    Regards, Rod.

  • Oh, that would be me interrupting them…lol But I do try ever so hard not to stress any living thing I like to photograph. Thanks so much Rod.
