I love to take photos on my yard. You might see a lot of life, if looking closely. I spotted this purple wildflower near our garage. A ladybug was taking her walk on it. Below is Frank Leto's animated song Ladybug, Ladybug from YouTube. I thought kids might like it :). Have a great weekend, everybody!

Jama said...

These wildflowers are so pretty, you should try doing a macro of it.

Blue Eyed Tango said...

Good eye....way to spy her! Lu

Robert V. Sobczak said...

Good shot. That took me a moment to find.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Very nice. The song is cute, too. Have a great weekend!

VALKYRIEN said...

Is that a ladybug?? The ones we have in Norway have dots - this one looks like it has stripes! Lovely shot anyhow! :)

Keats The Sunshine Girl said...

Nice , cute song. Makes me want to take flight too! I'll have to learn to sing it with the kids I meet. Thanks

Suzanne Casamento said...

I love that shot of the ladybug "taking her walk." Very nice! :)

Tattibau said...

A very simple and common subject and yet you made a real beauty out of it. I have much respect for your artistic skills. Lovely!

VALKYRIEN said...

You asked about macro Rosidah!
I guess it depends a lot on what camera you have. With my camera I can near inn to 1 cm from the motiv - so I never zoom in. I don't have a SLR camera - only a little advanced ordinary digital camera. On most cameras you can find a littel tulip ( or flower) on your display, which means closups. And then it all depends on the camera - and how steady your hands are! :)

My closeups/macro today is way much better after I bought the camera I have now. Earlier I had one of those small cameras you can put in your pocket. I got some nice one also then - but none of them can compeet with the macro I take now! And that is beacause I can near the camera so much.

Hope it was helpfull! And just ask if my explaination wasn't good enough!

Have a nice weekend Rosidah!

Tricia said...

Very pretty flower & cute video!

Carletta said...

I always think of Lady Bugs as the sweetest of the bug world!
The video was cute too.

Rosidah
Thanks for your visit. I'm very happy to be the guest friend today and you were the first to visit me, but my post entered just now.
Could you go there again? There is a surprise.

Tattibeu is rigth, you made a beauty from a simple and common subject .

Bryan said...

Great shot of two pretty things together!

An addition to what Valkyrien said: most cameras go into macro mode when when one of the directions on the four-way controller is pushed, usually left or down. It'll be indicated by the tulip/flower.

Rosamaria said...

Thanks for comming back, I loved it!
Hope you have a nice weekend too!

Drowsey Monkey said...

That's a lovely photo.

Vicky said...

A bug? Urgh. But sometimes, bugs are cute. So is the wild flower. Something wild can also sometimes be pretty.

You got two for one! Pretty flower and I enjoyed the lady bug song. Thanks for the visit!

Great close-up shot of the lady bug visiting the flower, Rosidah.
