Spotted in the Quarry.

A foray into the old sand quarry during today’s very welcome sunshine found a couple of 7-spot ladybirds warming themselves, one on a leaf of wood sage and the other in gorse. As yesterday was the shortest day the sun is at its lowest point in the sky and the contrast of bright red elytra against green foliage shone out beautifully.
