On our walk home from dinner I had my camera in hand when Laura stopped to point out a ladybug resting on a flower. We've had a special affinity for ladybugs ever since a backpacking trip where our Grandmother (who we called "Popo" in the Chinese fashion) said she wished she was a ladybug so that she could sit on our shoulders and share our adventure. Ever since we have associated Popo with ladybugs and since her passing finding one is almost like sharing the moment with her.
