Poor Footing

Post by microcollector »

My wife, who has been Alabama since November caring for her mother, requested that I take some photos of the spring flowers to send her. While wandering about the yard taking photos, I ran across this lady bug trying to scramble across a dandelion seed head. This was a one shot opportunity as the lady bug fell off after the first shot, no chance to improve on it. This is a 800 x 600 crop from a 3008 x 2000 pixel full frame.

The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.
