Ladybirds

I am fascinated by these wonderful creatures.  They seem to be everywhere at the moment when I am out walking my dogs, Gunner and Morgan.  The colours of them  is wonderful I  would love a spotty skirt in these colours!

 

 

I love the book The Bad-tempered Ladybird by Eric Carle, I was then putting a link into the book and realised on the website of Eric Carle it seems to have changed its name and is now The Grouchy Ladybird .  I am not sure the ladybirds in my pictures were bad tempered/grouchy or just enjoying the sunshine!!  🙂

Also took this picture of a field mushroom, loved the dew around it!

  1. There are so many about at the moment. I love the pictures and you have a fabulous macro on your camera. We found one of these on the clematis yesterday. http://www.harlequin-survey.org/images/ladybird_imgs/h_axyridis_spectabilis.jpg but when I went back to photograph it, it had gone. Hope you are having good weather, rain when you need it. Love Cxxx

    Thanks for your comment. The Harlequin ones are lovely to see, but I believe they eat our poor common or garden variety. Think my ladybirds may have a reason to be bad tempered! lol

    I used to use it at school and the hungry caterpillar. Glad to see you posting.

  5. Great pics – love the third one down where you can even see the hairs on the leaves! We have a wooden ladybird house in our garden but they seem to spend more time on the lavender bush. Look forward to seeing your next collection of beautiful photos. x
