This photo was taken in the fall of 2020 during the lockdown linked to the coronavirus, in the south-east of France, in the Forez mountains, in the meadow of my garden.
At this time when the days are short, ladybugs are abundant in the still green grass and are very active until the end of the day. It is therefore easy to observe them with a little patience and while staying at ground level.
Held near my home due to government instructions, I carefully and patiently observed the "little inhabitants" in the grass until my gaze fell on a small ladybug hanging upside down on a tree stalk. bold ray.
I then had the chance to watch for a few seconds the unfolding of its wings and take off towards another green horizon. It was then that I was able to capture this moment with my camera and experience the takeoff of the little ladybug. Beyond this privileged moment, this reminds us of all the living and unsuspected wealth that lives in front of us under our feet.
