Ladybird: Fight for survival...

Post by puzzledpaul »

Happened to notice this guy hanging upside down and decided to investigate ...

... was struggling to free the one foot that'd got stuck in a bit of old, unattended web - I freed it after taking pix.

You're a nice guy there pp, freeing the little bug from web. I really like the use of selective focus and the utilization of natural light, though I quite often use a flash. Natural light seems to look so much better, maybe I should use it more where possible. Thanks puzzledpaul, great images! :D
