    Last one for this evening. A ladybird spotted on my cycle ride home. I love the contrasting colours in this one.

    Such a delicate plant...on its "way out" as winter approaches. Wonderful red ladybird (or as we call them ladybug). How great that you can ride to and from work and be able to see something as beautiful as this and photograph it!

    The plant wasn't on it's way out, I don't know what plant it is, but it shuts up for the night, and opens again in the morning. I just caught it in good light before it woke up. I first saw this plant whilst on holiday in Italy, and there the local bugs used to climb in at night and use it as a makeshift bedroom, if that's not anthropomorphizing things a bit too much.
