Swarming ladybirds!

Ladybird, ladybird fly away home…ladybugs hanging out together, it like no one wants to go home.

Apparently a group of ladybirds is called a loveliness – that’s what the internet told me!! When I saw today’s theme of  swarm, I immediately thought of this photo which I took not all that long ago .There is a power pole up in the bush which is covered in these ladybirds and we don’t really know why they congregate together like this.

Swarm: to fly off together in a group, as bees; to move about in great numbers, as things or persons. Show us something that overruns your scene, but observe and compose carefully before you click the shutter.

Show us a swarm today: large group, moving together. Birds. Bugs. Kids. Taxi cabs. Your subjects can be big or small, animate or inanimate — whatever they are, you just need a lot of them.

I think I have followed the instructions on this one!  I zoomed in on them and have composed the shot to try and show the larger pack.  I like their togetherness, not to mention their orangeness!  It does make a good picture though!
