PHOTO OF THE DAY
The tiny, fuzzy world of ladybugs
Ladybug navigates over the fuzzy surface of a plant
It might look like ladybugs and other insects scuttle across plants with amazing ease. But when you look closely at what it is they're navigating, it's a wonder they move at the speeds they do! Can you imagine trying to walk on a surface that is this, well, hairy? Nothing like macro photography to help us find a deeper appreciation for a bug's life.
