Is it a Ladybug or a Ladybird??
I had this discussion a couple of weeks ago – I call it a Ladybird. I did a bit of research as to where the 2 different names came from, apparently it was mostly named Ladybird, but people started calling it Ladybug (as its a Bug not a Bird). The ‘bird’ part was because it has wings & flies. Its also known as a Lady Beetle in some places. What do you call it?
These photos were from a couple of different trips to the gardens with my macro lens, I agree with a fellow blogger about taking a tripod, the leaves in all these shots are out of focus & blurry. I do like that effect – but I definitely think these photographs could be sharper. The Ladybird looks OK in them – I think a tripod would sharpen up the leaves around the Ladybird in the photographs??
