One lonely ladybird, (ladybug), found in our garden this week. Hiding back in the shadows and slowly working towards the light.
For those of you who have visited my site before and seen the many thousands of these beautiful creatures that I have photographed before at my “secret location” will be dismayed to find out they are all dead.
Seems Council staff couldn’t prevent them from entering a nearby radio repeater station and rather than build a barrier sprayed the lot!!!! I have voiced my complaint and hope one day they will be able to breed and again mass in their thousands.
In the meantime we can only hope lone ones like this survive and remain alive in our gardens.
