On a walk, a saw lots of ladybugs hanging around on the trees. Looking closely at one, she flew off, leaving behind a cache of eggs. I looked around, and found another one in the act. I ran home to grab my camera with the tubes and 50mm attached and returned. She was almost done with her job when I returned, but remained long enough to capture.

good find/capture - saves a lot of debate trying to get the eggs ID'd.

Wonderful shot- not seen one before of a ladybird laying eggs. Slight shame it's a harlequin ladybird though :)

LordV, what sort of ladybugs are your favourite? And why are halrequin bugs a shame to find?
