‘Ladybirds are beautiful creatures that have captivated me for a long time,’ says Carolyne. ‘ The day that I took this I had spent many hours observing their behaviour as they crawled and flew among the grass stalks. On this particular day it was very hot and the ladybirds were very active, so I decided to get my Nikon D90 and 100mm macro lens to see if I could capture them on the move. I was so lucky to be able to capture one in flight. I was thrilled to see the image back of my camera.’
