Ladybird, Park Natolinski, Canon 350D, lens Industar 2,8/50mm

Coccinellidae is a family of beetles, known variously as ladybirds (Commonwealth English), ladybugs (North American English) or lady beetles (preferred by scientists). The word "lady" in the name is thought to allude to the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Catholic faith. Coccinellids are found worldwide, with over 4,500 species described, more than 450 native to North America alone. Coccinellids are small insects, ranging from 1 mm to 10 mm (0.04 to 0.4 inches), and are usually yellow, orange, or red with small black spots on their carapace, with black legs, head and feelers. As the family name suggests, they are usually quite round in shape. Because they are useful, colourful, and harmless to humans, coccinellids are typically considered cute even by people who hate most insects. Some people consider them to be a sign of good luck.

What a nice little bug.
The place, where he's sitting is very abstract.
Just small - but in the middle of the photo, saying - I'm the highlight, look at me!
There is a nice reflection on his back.
I like it.
Thanks and bye

Hello Norbert!
Very nice capture.Blurred BG and reflection on ladybird are great.Thanks for posting.

Super fotka!
Swietne detale i kolory, naprawde fajnie uchwycona biedronka.
Najciekawsze jest centrum zdjecia, dlatego mysle, ze dobrze byloby "odciac" reszte i pokazac je w wiekszym zblizeniu.
Ogolnie, bardzo ciekawa fotka.

Witam!! świetna fotka

Hi Norbert,
Lovely shot, I like the expanse of empty space around the ladybird. Good colours, DOF is spot-on and detail very good, nice work!

Piękna kompozycja. Znakomita GO i kadr.
Podoba się BARDZO :-)
Pozdrawiam Małgosia
