A Photo A Week Challenge: Lit from Within

One of the issues of living in London is that our climate in winter rarely gets cold enough for frost throughout the day. Come the evening, everything is damp and the inside of public transport becomes cocooned within the moisture deposited on the windows. The result is that buses can look like lanterns as they proceed along their route……A 210 bus photographed outside the Whittington Hospital where some of its passengers may well have attended for bronchial complaints!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Close Up or Macro

A native of eastern Asia, the Harlequin Ladybird is an invasive species that was first recorded in the UK in 2004. It’s entry into the UK was probably via imports of cut flowers and vegetables from Europe where the species was introduced as a biological control agent to combat infestations of various pest species in glasshouse crops. It is considered a threat to native UK ladybird species and is being monitored. Further information can be found on the Harlequin Ladybird Survey website.
