The photo is best described as warm. There is the crackling fireplace, the warm lighting, and it’s all enhanced by the rows of orange ceramic vases and amphoras against the wall. All-in-all, a very comforting red image.
We think of ladybirds as red but compared to these very red leaves, they seem to pale into a rich orange. This almost monochrome image is a wonderful find. Not only is the inclusion of the ladybirds subtle, but over time you realise just how many of these there must be on an average sized tree of this sort. The sheer numbers of the insect population can be astonishing, and beautiful.
