Basking in the sun by cjwhite

Basking in the sun

This little ladybug was soaking up the sun. She didn't like it when my shadow blocked her rays. She would move to a different spot everytime. I felt a little sorry for her, but I really wanted her pic. :0)

We had frost last night, but it didn't stay around very long. It warmed up nicely today and the sky was blue with a wispy cloud here and there.

Thank you for you nice comments on yesterday's pic of Wuzzy! Now that the weather is cooler, all the cats think they need to follow me and help with pics. It looks like a Crazy Cat Lady game of Follow the Leader. :0)

Beautiful capture of her--the colouring too, really pretty! Our ladybugs are gone, gone
October 23rd, 2011  
Such vibrant colours on her wing case, most of the ladybirds I've seen this year have been a duller red.

Great close up, brilliant colours and lighting

I almost did not come say "congrats on the PP" as you must be so used to it, that it barely makes a blip on your radar! Haha! This one was esp. great! Love it!
