Life in a Painting

 

Bug Rescue =) 081

They are little creatures, these insects…that’s why I’ve got to get right down there with them in the dirt…sometimes it helps to actually lay down. 😉

This was the case with this ladybird…I was laying down on the track next to this group of flowers… originally I was attracted to this spot by bees and tiny hoverflies when I came across this busy little fellow who didn’t stop moving at all…

Because of the low perspective I am virtually guaranteed a ready made, impressionist, bokeh background every time…

At the end of the day, if I have sore elbows, soggy knees and nettle stings then I know that I must of had a good day! 🙂
