Ladybug (Two Photographs)

These beetles are called Ladybugs or ladybirds depending on which side of the Atlantic you are on. They are a bit feisty and quick footed. I would like to get one in flight. They eat aphids among other things and when the aphids are plentiful so are the ladybugs. I mostly find them on bushes and because they are so small it’s their color that gives them away. Because of their size, getting a good shot  and a good background can be difficult due to the depth of field and light fall off.
