Always wear clean underwear when photographing insects!

Sorting through some photos that I took quite some while ago (you can tell it was a while ago, because it's sunny!), I realised that one has to be very careful when snapping shots of insects with shiny elytra:

Melanic evil invading Harlequin ladybird

Yes, that is me reflected in the wing-cases. But I'm pretty sure I'm decent.

I think I'll stick to non-reflective insects in future.

Far less reflective native British seven-spot
Flutterby. Probably a Meadow Brown, but I'm not as good at butterflies.
