Ladybird Massing. by Steve Chapple

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

The Ladybirds are back in their thousands.

Many thanks to my tour guide today who has these on their private property, gathering in masses on bushes and fence lines.

Taken near Mt Burr in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia.

Nature at its best watching these beautiful creatures climb over one another and fly off into the nearby forest.

Canon 7D – Sigma Macro 70 – 300.
ISO 400 – F5.6 1/1000th sec.
