Ladybugs do it!

LadybugsTo view more of my photography please click on

I have seen some stunning ladybug photographs this year. This summer I saw only a few ladybugs in the wild. You need luck to get them just right. Ladybugs move surprisingly fast and like all beetles they fly. Their carapace is highly reflective, not helpful at mid-day. This was the first time I came across a mating pair and wanted a shot but it was difficult given that they were moving all over the plant and I did not want their heads hidden. Eventually it all worked out and what felt like half an hour of shooting was probably only a few minutes before their position changed again and they hid their heads.
