for you all - "i'm sending luck and wishes all wrapped up in a hug, good things should come your way with this tiny ladybug"

"this ladybug of friendship

i've sent to you today

comes with hope, joy and happiness

to last throughout your day"

i spotted this tiny creature in the garden a couple of weeks ago, navigating her way through the periwinkles. i was filled with excitement because it was my very first opportunity to capture a ladybug with my camera. of course, i couldn't get her to stay still long enough - instead she turned her back on me. i started clicking anyway, hoping i could get a decent shot. although i did not get as nearly a spectacular a shot as some of you have on your streams, i thought it was still worth the effort. and i could not have asked for a more beautiful foreground & background than what Mother Nature had provided in this one precious moment.


242 days to go before my next trip to the Philippines.
