As an experiment I used the feeble 'Macro' on this camera in an effort to picture the ladybird on the park bench. She posed happily while I pussyfooted around and when at home I used the HP system to crop and enlarge the pic. This is the best I can do with the little camera and I am quite pleased with this. The beasts colour makes her very popular, especially with kids, and the children's storybooks called 'ladybird Books' have sold around the world. These are of course just beetles and if they were black most folk would turn away from them as unattractive. Gardeners love them as each of these beauties can devour 5000 aphids in their year long life. They are so good at this that they have been deliberately introduced into the USA to deal with the aphid problem there. Lovely beasts and very popular, except when strong winds bring billions over from France and swarm all over the south of England.
