Latest images, news and general thoughts of a macro photographer (who occasionally photographs larger things as well!)

There have been quite a few ladybirds in my garden over the last couple of weeks, far more than last year in fact. Most are Seven-Spots but I have also seen a Ten-Spotted ladybird, something I've only ever seen on occasions. I've yet to see a Harlequin ladybird which is quite reassuring given how rapidly this alien invader seems to be overtaking the Seven Spot in many parts of the country.
