Well hidden behind a tree log, on the side opposite to the ocean.

No post processing for this image, as usual.
Note: the ladybug is red in the original image. Some browsers actually visualize it as faded red.

I had no idea they enjoyed the beach. I thought they were found in the woods more. Must be on vacation.
