beautiful colors, excellent detail

Ah ... a picture of Peter! , good! Hello Peter!
Nice pair of ladybugs, with a good angle to capture and beautiful surroundings blur, which suggests that they are very small insects, notably increased. I see that until identifying the host plant! good job, nice to see a new picture of you! Good weekend, Jesús

High quality macro work.
Pleasing luminosity, colour and background.

Hi Peter,
da hast Du einen schönen Moment beobachten können. Sehr oft habe ich diese Sorte noch nicht sehen dürfen - und dann gleich im Doppelpack, toll. Gute Schärfe, ein toller Glanz auf den Körpern. Gefällt mir sehr, lieben Dank und viele Grüße

Hello Peter,
A technically excellent macro of Calvia quatuordecimguttata. The sharpness is excellent and the DOF just right. However, as I think it is a little too dark I have tried the WS. Maybe you think this is unnecessary but I thought it was worth a try.
Thanks and best wishes,

Sexo en su esplendor. Excelente balance de blancos y muy buena nitidez

Hello Peter,
Not so common ladybug, very well taken, with great sharpness and nice background. Have a nice sunday,

Hi Peter

Great shot of these two having a good time. His eyes look like they are bulging out with excitment, ha ha.
Excellent composition and sharpness, great OOF background.

Hello Peter,
wow...this is a splendid capture in excellent close up. i have nevr seen this type of bug yet.
lovely pair and caught in a good moment.
clarity and sharpness is superb. The view is really oustanding, thinking of how small they are on that hairy stalk.

Lieber Peter,
Freue mich, wieder ein Bild von dir zu sehen. Und du hast hier eine Marienkäfer-Spezies gefunden, die ich noch nie gesehen habe. Hier sehen wir fast nur noch die asiatischen Invasoren, einige überwinterten sogar in unserem Haus in Bern. Feine Farben für diese intime Szene..
Hoffe von Dir noch zu hören, wenn Du ins Wallis kommst.
Herzlich grüsst

Ciao Peter, fantastic maiting couple, superb details and splendid sharpness, wonderful natural colors, very well done my friend, have a good week, ciao Silvio
