Another trip out to the swarming of ladybirds that I have been reporting on at Mount Burr South Australia.

This time we took them flowers!!!!!!

The thousands I have posted on recently have dwindled to small groups of twenty to thirty and are slowly moving on.

They climbed aboard our flowers which gave us opportunities to take some images a little different to those uploaded over the last few days. I promise the ladybirds shots will stop soon but they are just such brilliant works of nature that I can’t help keep going back whilst they are there.

Canon 400D 18 – 55 lens with two stage extension tubes and speedlight.
