So I went to Yellowstone and Photographed... a Ladybug!

Many things have kept me out of Yellowstone National Park this summer, despite living about a mile from the gate. Besides my new daughter, I've been working on a soon to be announced project that actually doesn't involve Yellowstone. But, after missing a couple of book signings due to pneumonia, I finally made it to my first book signing of the summer season last week, but before, I took a big detour and went through Hayden Valley and down to Yellowstone Lake. The wildflowers in the park are wonderful this year and I've always loved how the lupine grows in these big clumps along the shore of Yellowstone Lake. So I stopped and shot a few compositions. As I studied the flowers and the scene, I noticed a couple of ladybugs among the flowers, so trotted back and grabbed my macro lens. After trying several compositions and varying the depth of field, I ultimately liked the photo above, The Lady in the Lupine, the best. Below is the lupine patch and if you look real close you might notice the ladybug in the top/middle of the flowers. So yes, I went to Yellowstone and photographed a ladybug!
