There is a large plant out by the road at my mom's place. When I saw a lady bug, I went for the camera. On closer inspection, I saw a tiny macro ecosystem on the plant. I had a fun filled day of shooting! Lots more to come from this shoot! This lady was feasting on these tiny creatures. Camera on auto macro.
