Ladybird Meeting place by Steve Chapple

Currently unavailable for purchase

Another image from my Ladybird meeting place near Mt Burr, Limestone Coast, South Australia.

Many of you who have visited before would have seen a range of images from this secret little place where these ladybirds congregated in their thousands.

Recently I reported they had all been killed by poison spray laid by Local Government. I have been back and they are just starting to regenerate now with only small bunches in their tens surviving but they seem to be making a slow comeback.

This image, shot with a Canon 400D – sigma 100 – 300 macro, is an old image I have been wanting to post for some time. Hopefully we will see them back in their glory like this in years to come.

    Great to hear they are making a come-back Steve, love this shot – more than the other dark-sided one actually! – They look more real!
