In spring 2012 I wrote a blogpost explaining how I go about photographing Ladybirds in that split second before they take-off (see here). Last year there were very few Ladybirds about until quite late in the summer but I did manage a couple of sessions photographing them taking off (or attempting to at least). It's not easy, but here are a couple of images that I was quite pleased with.
