Thank you all for your comments. I'll share with you how I did this. Take a leaf and plant it in sand or styrofoam inside a container like tupperware. Go to your local nursery that carries ladybird beetles and buy a small container. Put the container in the frig for a few minutes to keep the bugs cool - then, dump a bunch of them into the tupperware container near the leaf and wait to see if any start climbing up it.

Beautiful image of these ladies. I really like the focus and contrasting colors.

Oh my, this was shot in a Styrofoam container? Your ingenuity is brilliant. I can't wait to try this out.

Enjoying your images,
