  1. I have not seen any ladybirds yet over here. I just hope that the long cold winter didn't kill them all off. I love the way that the ladybird photo is so sharp, you can see the sheen on the wings.

  2. I come here for a little dose of spring as the rain falls on a rather bleak Tuesday morning. . not a bad day to be heading to work.

  3. Great shots--the photo of the blackberry blossoms is really just perfect, but all three are great.

  4. Great shot with the ladybug! I need to practise more with my macro...or get a better digi-cam...!
