I was sat in my garden listening to the cricket when I saw a Ladybird climbing in an Alchemilla Mollis plant. I spent the next half hour observing it's movements and taking photographs. Lots of photograph but here are just a few of them.
For anyone not familiar with the title, "Ladybird, Ladybird, fly away home", its from an old English nursery rhyme. Below is a link for more details at Wikipedia.
|This Ladybird was very active and acrobatic.|
|Once or twice it started to open it's wing cases and I hoped to get it taking off.|
|But then it just continued climbing around.|
|Another preparation for flight?|
|Well, I nearly got it, but then, as the nursery rhyme says, it flew away home.|
(To another plant actually, but I'd already missed a lot of the cricket so called it a day)
