Stopped the car to take a picture of this "giant dandelion" -Goat's Beard - and it wasn't until my fifth picture of so that I noticed the ladybug. This is the same picture as the one before, but I prefer the black and white - it goes well with the contrast between the plant and the background, and it makes that little red bug really stand out.
Look, a sharp-dressed good-looking (and aggressive) Italian man gets rejected. ... I think my baggy-pants-and-sweat-shirt-wearing self doesn't stand a chance in this country.
