    Default Insect Week! (photo of 7-spot ladybird/bug)

    Hi all

    I put this together to help promote (unofficially) 'Insect Week' here in the UK.

    The 'event', organised by the Royal Entomological Society, is held annually to raise awareness and encourage small and big people to learn more about insects, which are vital to life on this planet.

    The photo of the ladybird/bug was taken with an Olympus TG-6 Tough digital camera and cropped and tweaked in Affinity Photo/Designer. It's a shame but I just couldn't get the eyes in focus. I actually don't think the relatively low-res camera can handle the fine detail of the faceted structure the compound eyes at this close distance. If I get time I might draw over some new ones!

    This unique head-on shot gives plenty to interest eye and to promote the message. I really like the composition.
