Well Hello Ellen :)

I always thought we'd meet right here!

Now this has gotta be a once in a lifetime shot...

Brilliantly caught and portrayed, and congrats on 1st. #8763778

Thanks all!!! What a nice surprise to come home to today. Yes, Graham, this is definately a once in a lifetime kind of shot. I was looking for tiny critters to photograph and was prepared with tripod, macro lens and a stacked set of extention tubes. When I spotted the ladybug I noticed the ants, too were busy on the same daylily flower petal. This one shot showed the interaction between the two. Very exciting, indeed! Thanks again!!! #8763799
