Ladybirds are high up on my list of favourite insects, but unfortunately, I didn't see many last year!

However, there were a couple that seemed to love hanging out on the Yarrow in my back garden, and I managed to grab a few shots of them before they disappeared!

Superb capture Ian! An amazing shot that looks as if you were right down there on the ground, which I suspect you were, but it's just brilliant. You could title it A bugs eye view! The detail and colour and composition are all perfect! Wonderful!

Great capture!
I love them too and I had a lot of them trying to get in my flat in Autumn when it started to be really cold outside. I still have some in my kitchen, that's fun! They were some red with black spots and some black with red spots... the bad thing is that they were also lots of bugs trying to get in...

Super macro Ian - the low POV makes all the difference to this shot - it's as if you're another ladybird staring at the competition.
