I was out in my yard the other day and decided to head inside. As I got near the steps to the porch, I happened to look down and see a ladybug on a blade of grass. So, of course, I ran inside to get the camera and put on the macro lens. I got down on the ground and watched the ladybug stop, then open its wings just a little, then open them even more, slipping one of its wings out. I was hoping to catch it fly away, as well, but it just put the wing back inside and kept crawling.
Later on, I was surprised upon opening them up in Photoshop to see that the little ladybug had something on the bottom of it. If you look closely at the picture, you will see that the ladybug had climbed through some pollen that can be seen at the bottom of the picture, on one of the blades of grass. Interesting, what you can see through the macro lens, isn't it?
How brave a ladybug must be!
Each drop of rain is big as she.
Can you imagine what you'd do,
if raindrops fell as big as you?
