a bug’s life

There are so many ladybugs around this spring, and they seem to be particularly active. This one was on some top-secret ladybug mission and wouldn’t stop moving.

    You do magic things with light and colour. Fabulous photo. Here in Ireland we call ladybugs, “ladybirds” – not sure why, as ladybugs makes much more sense!

      Thank you! My lens flared here against the sun, had to up the contrast quite a bit. “Ladybird” sounds prettier than “ladybug”, IMO. 🙂

    I love the photo and I love ladybugs. These days there are evidently faux ladybugs, but I have no idea how to tell real from faux. I remember catching ladybugs as a child, then letting them go. We did the same with fireflies. Good memories.
