More Ladybirds...

... but this time they're a bit more naughty!


Yes, I caught them 'at it' on my broad beans! They were busy for ages, so I managed to take the opportunity to practise focusing on my macro lens and was able to get up really nice and close.

Garden wildlife

My broad beans are crawling with blackfly. The horrible little monsters are everywhere and I'm really struggling to keep them under control. Luckily I spotted (no pun intended) this little fella on the plants this morning. Apparently ladybirds love to eat blackfly, so I'm hoping she's brought her family.

A couple of photos from today:
