Transitory Visitor

DSC08396 - Version 2This ladybug explored my body for a half hour or more today when I was manning the information booth of a local cultural center.  I couldn’t resist taking pictures—no easy task, since most of the time, as in this picture, she was on my right hand and wrist.  She seemed to be inspecting the new bracelets I made last night from buttons I found in a local recycle bazaar.  As I readied myself to go, I thought she had deserted me, but when I went into the office to say goodbye, I felt her crawl from my ear to my cheek.  When we got back to the information booth in the garden, I tried convincing her with “Ladybug, Ladybug, fly away home. . . .” but by then she’d staked her claim and seemed to be settling in for a nap, so I blew a little gust from pursed lips to persuade her on her way.  This shot is my new desktop picture.

(I’ve been a bit late posting today due to an internet outage this morning and a huge electrical storm this afternoon and evening that blew out an electrical transformer, plunging my entire village into darkness until 10 tonight. This is when I am thankful for fellow night-owls!!!)

I actually called a friend in Missouri (from Mexico) to post changes in my poem for me earlier tonight. I was sure we’d be without power all night, but my  electricity is on now and I’m making the most of it.

    Betty—Do suppose my sitting there taking a picture of a ladybug on various parts of my body had anything to do with making people reluctant to approach me for information? Ha. Judy

    Oh Judy, I LOVE ladybugs! Some people feel lucky when they find a penny on the ground–that’s how I feel when I spot a ladybug. What a beautiful shot–do you just use your iPhone camera? Looks professional!

      Thanks, Mandy. I feel exactly the same way. A kid again! I use a little Nikon digital camera. I don’t have a cell phone. Thanks…I took dozens to get a few good ones. For some reason I couldn’t get my camera into Micro mode…Judy
