Ladybird Fall Swarms

All of the area Ladybugs, or Ladybirds if you prefer, are trying to find a sheltered spot inside of a building of some sort to wait out the winter. I had many land on me and several get stuck in my hair while spending five minutes trying to get a few good shots of them.
Second shot is at 1/250s f8, ISO 200 @200mm with the same lens. Cropped only.
