miracle i saw this ladybird/ladybug .. (different depending on where you live) .. as he was so small ..
i immediately thought of complementary colours ..
he was on the stalk of the corn plant and facing down which to me wouldn't have made a great pic .. i touched him on his side hoping he would turn around but he walked quite quickly down the stalk .. i got a few shots of him on the way down .. but i wanted his face ..
as luck would have it he turned around and faced me ... i managed to get a few photos of him where you see him now ..
no idea how this will go .. but i like it and that's what matters .. :)

after rollover ..
you could have knocked me over with a feather ..
with such a low score i felt sure i wouldnt even be in the top 10 ..
getting a ribbon is absolutely wonderful ..
and once again yellow . which totally suits this image ..
thankyou everyone .. xx
