Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Ladybird, Ladybird Fly Away Home

Ladybird-

Good morning from a sunny Hastings day.  Yesterday was spring like – very warm for this time of the year.  Apparently today the weather will turn to custard. Snow is predicted over the North Island.

Yesterday I was talking to a friend in the sun when I noticed this ladybird scurrying along the wooden table.  So it was an immediate stop to the conversation and the cellphone came out.  I haven’t seen a ladybird for years – since my children were little.  So  just had to search for the poem that we always sang as children.  There are several versions which go back to 1744.  I wonder where or who made this poem up.    Great though, for Sally’s great challenge for our mobile devices hosted by Lens and Pens by Sally

I did edit this in Lightroom, Photoshop and then Photoscape for the frame.  This is also part of the 3 Days, 3 Quotes challenge – thanks to Jennifer from Jennifer Nichole Wells who has nominated me for this.  As part of the challenge I get to nominate others.  But I think most of the bloggers I know have already done it so I will just say that if anyone wants to do it then they are welcome to.

  1. I knew I hadn’t seen you in a while. You were dropped from my Reader AGAIN. You aren’t the only one. I don’t understand why this keeps happening. Sorry about that. Glad I checked. The photo is wonderful.

    1. Thanks Sally. We consider them good luck too, which is why I just had to take a photo of it. This afternoon I took a photo of a huge cockroach which I won’t be putting on my blog – it is on my Facebook page for my 2 children to laugh over.
