Sorry about the plural when the subject is in the singular. I wondered as I clicked this shot, did this beautiful insect miss its way? This sure must be one uncomfortable bed...
Thanks for lookin'!

Hi Goldy,
Beautiful capture.POV,colors and composition are perfect.
Thanks for posting.

Hola Goldy,
What a beautiful bicoloured rose my friend, with that bud on the left it is plural after all! You've also captured a cute little coccinellid there, probably looking for aphids to eat! TFS this fine image, and cheers,

Hi Bro a lovely composition of this Rose and Ladybug.
Colours, DOF and details are great.
TFS and cheers,

Ciao Goldy,
bellissima macro, raffinata composizione con i fiori di rosa e la piccola coccinella, ottima definizione con un'eccellentte messa a fuoco, bellissimi i colori e la rosa risplende nel contrasto con il BG.

Hi goldy,

good shot of the rose ans the surprising beetle.
Beautiful colours and the composition are okay.


The touch of saffron on the rose matches perfectly with the colour of the Ladybird, Goldy.
A very interesting and attractive composition, indeed.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Goldy,
This is an original capture which putted a smile in my face :) It's nice to see such a sunny post as today it is raining, cold and grey here. There are few OE exposed spots but I'm being picky. You chose good composition with beautiful colors and details.

Coucou Gold, this rose is so beautiful with the colourful bibitte patate (that's the way we call them here, in French Canadian), a potato bug! As for the bed of roses, you couldn't say it better. Great shot Goldy, always a pleasure to look at your pictures,


Hey Goldy,
Not the best of Roses to capture but the lady got it some attention it seems. Very nice details and exposure Goldy. Great eye :)

Hi Brother Goldy,

I have been away and see that I have missed so many wonderful posts of yours. A lovely macro of this colorful rose looking beautiful against the green leaves. I wouldn't expect to see a ladybug there but it is a real bonus. Wonderful clarity, colors and composition.

fine POV, beautiful luminosity, excellent sharpness and details,

Hello My Friend,
This lady bug sure found a lovely spot to rest, I wonder if they can smell. Beautiful image Goldy with bright colors and good detals. Thank you for sharing.
