Lady Bugs (Coccinellidae)

Coccinellidae is the name of the family of the ladybugs (also called ladybirds) represented in Europe with 88 species. Ladybugs are usually distinguished by color and the number of spots on the wing case. The most common beetle of this family is the red "Sevenspotted Lady Beetle" (Coccinella septempunctata) whose coloration is very constant.

Here you can see a Thea Vigintiduopunctata, I don't know the english name in German: Zweiundzwanzigpunkt.
The name is given, because he has 22 Spots.
On every wing 11. At the neck he has 5 more black points.
He's about 3 mm long.
I hope you like my little friend.

Hi Wishnu,
great macro!
Colors and note excelent.

Very good macro, Sabine.
I don't think you need a 800 ISO for this picture.
You loose a lot of details when you use high ISO.
It's little soft and IMO it need a little more contrast.
The POV, compositiona and colours are very good.
I did a WS to show.
Very well done.

Wow, ein 22Punkt!!! Ein sehr gutes Motiv für Dein Makro-Objektiv. Foto kristallklar, schöne saubere Farben und einen excellenten Bildaufbau. Vielen Dank und Gruß.

Hello Sabine,
Nice shot but a bit soft in focus and details. I like the colours and composition.
Thank you for sharing.

This is a very nice composition, but a little soft ...
The WS made by Gert make your shot great (Argh..., Post Processing so useful ...!)
TFS, Laurent

Bonjour Sabine, bien jolie composition avec une belle harmonie de couleurs vertes , la mise au point est un peu douce . Any way good work. TFS Didier.

Great capture! I have never seen a yellow ladybug with 22 spots but they look very interesting. Great note, it's very informative. God Bless!

HI Wishnu,
I like this yellow ladybug.
She looks great on the nice green leaves.
Nice shot.

Nice shot Sabine!
It's a bit soft in focus, but has superb POV and composition. Colours are very nice too and whole is very clear.
I like it very much.

Hi there,

Focus seems a little soft but the colors are quite nice and the composition is good. TFS!


Hi Sabine, This is a lovely shot. The tones match really well and you've chosen a great composition. I think your DOF is perfect for this shot and I like the softness, it feels right for this image. Well done and TFS :)

What a nice and interesting "Coccinelle" that you have well captured ! I like very much this vertical composition and the vivid colors ! Good DOF.
This summer I saw no Ladybugs, I don't know why...
Thanks for sharing Sabine.
