I shot this plantago, because it has a little ladybug on it. The plant has become rare in the netherlands, but luckily is quite common in other places. The leaves are said to be good against toothaches

The composition is very nice.

Nice one Geroen!
Perfect composition, fine clarity, nice exposure and clean BG with the frontal view of the Ladybird giving extra colour and interest.

Hello Jeroen,
As a hay fever sufferer this is not my favourite plant!! However, your capture is excellent with great focus on the little Ladybird and I like the smooth background.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Jeroen.
Nicely composed of this plant and with little ladybug. Well captured. Sharp details and perfect blurred BG. I like the dots connected, it looks like a heart. Well done.

Hallo Jeroen,
Een heel bijzonder plantje begrijp ik. Het Lieveheersjebeestje is wel de blikvanger door de kleur. Prachtige foto in uitstekende scherpte en heel mooie kleuren. Prachtig contrasterende vage achtergrond.
