Our unseasonably warm temperatures appear to be waking the insect world! 

“A Little Red On Winter White” (Ladybug on Capped Drinking Fountain) Nikon D300, 95mm, F/5.3, 1/800s, +0.3EV, ISO 200

I found this little ladybug soaking up the warmth of the noon sun at a quaint park I visited to photograph old equipment for the ‘Playground Series’

After ourvery long winter, she is a most welcome sight! 🙂



  1. see?! nothing obvious or uninteresting about this. beautiful flash of color. great dof.

  2. ps: added you to my blogroll. dubious distinction. welcome!

    • Wow, thanks! I will most likely add you to mine as well. Need to read a bit more to make sure you are worthy (wink, wink)! 😉

      • Okay, Stephen, you’re worthy!:-) I’ve added you to my blogroll. Happy trails!

  3. I’ve noticed more ladybugs around, too! Mostly in my bathroom, though… Weird, huh? But it’s the warmest, sunniest spot in the house, so I guess it makes some sense… 🙂

    • Lucky you! But, yes, very weird! Like, do you wonder where they’ve come from? Is your bathroom some secret ladybug hibernation spot? I’ve not seen a single one here in Beverly (yet). This one was in a park in Salem. So, there’s hope! 🙂

  4. Aww how CUTE! I love ladybugs and could photograph them all day long. Hoping to find a few this spring, that are willing to model for me.

    • Thanks, Michaela! Yep, me too! Put them right up there with rainbows and hummingbirds. Just magical little creatures. Love ’em! 🙂

  5. Being in Southern California, the bugs and insects are out all the time. Not in force as they are in the summer months, but they’re cruisin’ about their business uncaring of our needs.

    It’s rather neat to see a different perspective from somewhere that gets “a real” winter …..

    • Luckily, we’re not too, too buggy here in Northeast MA, but it is funny that you don’t really notice they are gone in winter until they are back in spring! Usually, it begins with the ants (old house, small cracks everywhere = ants, we deal). One day there are no bugs, and then boom! the next you’ll see a fly or two, maybe a bee, a ladybug, an ant and you breathe a sigh of relief that indeed, you have survived another winter! 🙂

  6. Winter will be back later this week!

  7. I just love how you make simple things look amazing.
