Ladybug out early!


Its a bit early for ladybugs to be out. Regardless, I spotted this little guy on a rhododendron leaf this past weekend. Upon furter inspection, I saw he was balancing a raindrop on his back. Bet he kinda regrets coming out in this wet weather ;)

My goodness you certainly have a photographer's eye to see that ladybug out early. I hope that drop of water isn't too heavy. Nice job!

You managed to capture some of the magnification done by the water drop. Way to go

Nice ladybird pic. Still midwinter here and I will not one for months yet. I always look out for them, had a soft spot since I was a small boy.

The colors in the photo are so vivid. It would be lovely matted and framed for a child's room. I always love your photos. -Delores
