Day 265: Strawberry
10/30 of anything but me
The girls ran across this little guy while they were out chasing butterflies today. “Mom! Mom! Come take a picture of him!” they called. Focusing on something so small with my telephoto was challenging, particularly since an occasional gust of wind would whip through the grass, leaving Mr. Lady Bug to hold on for dear life. He made it, though, only to be later schlepped inside so the kids could watch him race across the kitchen table. Boy, do lady bugs run fast.
