Here’s another picture featuring the magnolias from my trip to the Botanical Gardens last week. I was trying to filter out all of the colour apart from the red on the ladybird, but instead I was left with some pinkish tones in the rest of the image. I was going to fix it until I noticed it looked quite nice, so it turned out to be a bit of a happy accident! This is my first successful macro shot of an insect as well, I think it’s pretty appropriate now that it’s officially British summer time and that’s usually when you start seeing ladybirds everywhere, just waiting for the temperature to pick up a bit now. Enjoy!
