The ladies are back

I'm posting early today. We are under a tornado watch and the weather people are predicting severe storms later this afternoon. It's serious enough that our county schools closed 3 hours early and other counties in Middle Tennessee are doing the same. I'm glad we have a great warning system, but it tends to make the dread worse.

The lady bugs are back! :0)

Thank you so much for your comments and faves on yesterday's pic of Woody!!! :0)

Edit The storms have finally ended. My family and friends are all safe. Thank you for your concern!

This is STUNNING, Carolyn! Such a great macro and I love your bright colors and clarity! I may have already asked, but do you have a macro lens for these or just your regular ones? I know about your storms coming and hope that the forecasters are wrong. My sister lives in Nashville area. Worrisome.

@karenann Thank you, Karenann. I don't have a macro lens. I used my kit lens for this one.
posted March 3rd, 2012  
What an adorable little Ladybug. I love the fuzzy plant he is on. I'm assuming that you survived the storms with no severe damage. We're still under the gun but things are beginning to look up. About dark, we had a really bad hail storm.
posted March 3rd, 2012  
Fantastic detail and textures. Glad you are safe.
posted March 3rd, 2012  
Beautiful picture! Another fav for me...
I'm glad the storms are past and all is well for you and your family and friends.

@vernabeth Thank you, Beth! We got the hail after dark. I hope Jeff's car doesn't have any damage. The wind got pretty bad. I went out in between storms and took my glass bird feeders down. One had already hit the ground, but it wasn't broken. I hope you didn't have any damage.
