The sun-warmed walls of the old stone church gave welcome warmth for ladybirds to recharge their energy levels, spread their wings and fly.

    I love this photo - I think the color combination caught my eye first. The moment captured is also pretty great - wonderful framing and work. I think you know we call them ladybugs.
