Harlequin Ladybird and Bluebell
Comments(7) # Harlequin Ladybird and Bluebell london e12

So, a couple of firsts here, the first bluebell photo of the season and also the first of the Harlequin Ladybirds. I actually only went to Wanstead Park on Tuesday to see whether the bluebells were yet ready for a nice photo of their blue driftiness. As suspected, they were not, there were some blooms out but most were still only present as buds. Whilst checking around the periphery that none were of the garden escape rather than our native species, I came across a completely different alien invader, the Harlequin. If nothing else, one has to admire their colouring. Canon EOS-1D Mark III
