In 1976 we had a very hot summer. I was 7 years old and remember it because there were thousands of ladybirds.
The ladybirds used to swarm and if I was outdoors they’d swarm over me! They’re pretty but they bite and you don’t really want them covering you from head to toe.
These ladybirds were in the garden, it looks like they over-wintered there and are just awaking from hibernation since the weather warmed up. I didn’t have my camera to hand so improvised with the camera on a Nokia Lumia. The results were better than I expected.
