Ladybug in macro

5 Aug

I first have to apologise for the absence lately.  My best friend from America is visiting and it’s also my birthday today.  But, excuses be gone.  I’m not a fan of bloggers who constantly take leave and give excuses, so this will be my first and only.  Cut me a break?

Anyway, for my birthday, the hubby hooked me up with my very first macro!!!!!!! See how excited I am? I wrote that all in italics.  And although I didn’t find much in the way of subjects today, I did get a good shot of a Ladybug…even if it was just her back.  So, I wanted to share.

And besides being a lazy gardener, I’m a very uneducated one as well.  So, after I noticed a couple of my tomatoes had holes in them, I looked up whether these cute little buggers were to blame.  I found out that not only are they innocent but ladybugs actually EAT the guilty!  In their lifetime, these guys will eat up to 1,000 aphids-little bugs that suck the life force (sap) from your tomato plants!

So, I guess he’s staying…
