Ladybirds

I’ve been rescuing Ladybirds again.  I think they come into the house on firewood somehow, perhaps they are hiding in crevices or under the bark, but  I am never aware of them at the time.  Then they must emerge and fly towards the light, as I find masses of them on the window screens, or around the widow edges.  There is a wonderful website about them if you are interested – HERE.  Today I must have caught and removed at least 25 of the little beetles and released them onto my large pot of moss that is often use as a background for photography.  Of course I then had to take some pictures before they flew away.  Here are a few……..

These are all taken with my usual Canon 550D and the wonderful 100mm macro lens and tripod.
