I was taking photos of this lady bug while it was on a thistle. It crawled up my knuckle and good thing I pressed the shutter quick enough prior to its flight.

    Yes, truly truly, I am jealous of your macro. And your steady hand. And the fact that ladybugs like you enough to pose (wink) for you.
