Lady Bug Nectar
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
The Ladybugs' Picnic
The Ladybugs' Picnic
My attention was drawn to this pomegranate when a section of its outer skin fell to the ground under the tree. I was lucky to get this one shot off, before the lady's scurried into hiding in the fruits crevices.

You are too funny, Arthur! ;~)

That is some tribe of Ladybugs you have there Carla! This is a remarkable macro capture, and obviously a one off chance! Well done!

:~) I was so surprised that I figured there'd be too much camera shake to even tell the lady's from the fruit. They quickly scurried away to hide.
I was thrilled by this capture. Thanks John!!

Hi Emile;
If the outer skin hadn't fallen exactly when I approached, I would have missed it. These little ladies were quick to hide. Thank you.
