[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ladybird or Ladybug.
In Europe, during the Middle Ages, insects were destroying the crops, so the Catholic farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for help. Soon the Ladybugs came, ate the plant-destroying pests and saved the crops! The farmers began calling the ladybugs "The Beetles of Our Lady", and they eventually became known as "Lady Beetles"! The red wings represented the Virgin's cloak and the black spots represented her joys and sorrows.

Hello Rimas

Excellent capture of nature at it's best. The dof really draws us in to the ladybug in the image. Nice work on this image.
