Where Were The Black Spots

A ladybird found that her black spots were all gone after awakening from a dream. Someone must have stolen them, or they had been washed away by the heavy downpour last night.

She had nobody to ask. Could those charming black spots fall over the edge of the leaf?

She saw nothing except a dirty puddle on the ground.

Her black spots disappeared out of nowhere.

That was the problem of this little beetle: she admired the black spots so much so she owned them in her dream.

I can help you dot it with a black marker pen. But I think it will fly up the hill and shout/scream.

These are wonderful pictures of the ladybird looking for her black spots. But I think she looks very becoming without them.

I've seen the likes of her over here too. I thought they were a different species. Aren't they? Great photos and nice creative story to go with them! :-)

Lol) this is what happens to me when I try to ask serious questions!! Ahh ha ha..I love these macros but I have a theory as to who maybe taking everyone's spots.. previous post -second photo of (Passionately Escessive)! Then again, perhaps she's just an innocent tourist?

Bangchik said...

I hope she doesn't know about cross breeding... black bugs are always in good mood. She might have a chance to realise the dream, babies with black spots....

Well, she is mighty handsome even without them- like a red lacquer box! But I can see that she is quite worried.

The ladybird looks good without the black spots even though she must miss them terribly.

She is colorful. Sharpness of the picture is very high. You always try to impose new idea. Thanks for following my blog.

looks like someone used too much elbow grease when they polished her

I've never seen a non-spotted one before, but she's still beautiful!

They reported that they were making their wedding into a reality movie titled: The Fat Indian Wedding, a copy cat of the Fat Greek wedding. They are going to show it in India to millions of viewers. Many people in New Zealand couldn't comprehend why you want to make your wedding a public spectacle. There was so much excess.

This was why I didn't post the photos when the wedding took place in January, though I happened to be there, when never before did the authorities close a road to fscilitate a private event. I overheard the securities saying the main Television were banned from covering the wedding.

The groom's dad spoke on TV that it was the biggest wedding ever. He is a billionaire based in Chicago.

May be they will show the movie in Malayia.

Acid rain washed awy the black spots. The NZ lady bugs are very small.

I hope she isn't too forlorn, rainfield, as she is quite beautiful anyway. Maybe this is just a passing thing. Perhaps she was just a bit too vain about her looks and, for a brief time, the ladybug fairy, removed them to teach her a lesson!

I have been a bit remiss in visiting the last few days...and I have missed following you around in Malaysia. I see you have been taking wonderful photographs.
