[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Common insect; everybody knows it.

The common ladybug, Coccinella septempunctata by its latin name, is part of our life since the coloured childhood books (I don't think there is one without a ladybug among the illustrations). A small round thing with red coat and seven dots. We've seen it thousands of thousands time, yet it is a pleasant surprise when we discover it again on the flowers in the garden or on some grass top trying to set up the gear for a flight. Many people have arachnophobia, but I never heard of "ladybugphobia".

Common insect; everybody knows it; everybody loves it.

hi petru,
a very sharp picture.good compo and POV but u could have cropped the picture a little bit(i think).but a good picture,

Hi Petru,
A beautiful picture!
I like the way how the ladybug stands out from the image, with its vivid red.
It works pretty good the DOF and the way the buds becomes defocused gradually.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Bonjour Petru
Elle est mignonne à croquer.
Le luisant de sa carapace, la rend plus résistante.
en fait c'est du rouge métalisé !!
