Macro Monday

A little while ago I posted some photos under the title of iridescence. They featured Lady Rosemary Leaf-Beetle. She was on my lavender! However, true to her name she migrated onto my rosemary. Lucky for me it was a sunny day making her all the more beautiful after her long trip from the lavender to the rosemary!

I couldn’t decide which photos to include so, dagnabbit, I’m putting loads of them into my Macro Monday offering!

Not so iridescent upside down eh Lady Rosemary!

I did get the impression she wanted to get away a few times….

She wouldn't fly for me though, preferring to just fall off the leaf!!
