A Morning with Ladybirds

It was one morning after a rainy night. Every wrinkle of the inconceivable antiquity of nature was well hidden under morning dew, but that never lasted long. The later was evaporated very soon in the warmth of the sun.

I was slow, too slow to capture only a few small drops. I did not explore what the wrinkle would look like, as I was distracted by some obvious ladybirds. And I was lucky, these bugs never got evaporated.

If I continued to be slow, I could be evaporated instead. Could I?

But I was ready to face the sun for many more shots, for those I had the obligation to make sacrifices.

I was still myself, but was suntanned, like what had happened to the ladybirds, in the end.

How silly an old rogue was, in a lovely morning.

Oh those are beautiful ladybirds, Rainfield! I can't see any wrinkle on things in nature, but just on me...why?

I don't think that 'old rouge' was silly at all. He got some wonderful macros on that lovely morning. Very well done!

You will not evaporate, but become more active in the sun's warmth like the ladybird.

I love ladybirds. Maybe their spots got evaporated. I wonder if yours bite like mine do.

Regina said...

This was terrific! What excellent captures..and a good thing nobody was evaporated! The last one's expression looks rather pleased:)

Forrest Gump's "Stupid is as stupid does" so yours would be "Silly is as silly does" lolz. The ladybirds are spotless without those 7 dots. Great shots.

Amin said...

How cute! Didn't realize I missed this post. You were suntanned like the bugs? Similar colour to the baby monkey. Probably it was suntanned too. I've selected your caption and it shall be the title too. Too funny.
