Ladybirds are attracted onto my roses because they were under attack from aphids.

Thanks Hans. I took these captures with my wee Sony point and shoot camera, which has been great for macro, that was before I got close-up filters for the Pentax.

I saw a video tutorial on the net from a guy called Byron Peterson and he doesn't like the close-up filters, in fact he was very critical of them. He said that they are always out of focus around the edges.
Focusing is sometimes difficult with them but I'm finding them to be OK.

Thanks Wijnie ,my roses were quite early this year and I have had some really nice blooms, but at the moment they are all in a regrowing stage and I haven't any flowers showing. :-(
