[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today's post is one of my former shots. I used a compact camera of Sony-Cybershot when I came back from Akkaya Damlake, located in our university campus. I met this scene and I also took them after bird watching and photography. I hope you will like this post. thanks for visiting.
Coccinella septempunctata - Uğur Böceği [TR], Seven-spot Ladybird, Seven-spotted Ladybug [EN] is the most common ladybird in Europe. Its elytra are of a red colour, but punctuated with three black spots each, with one further spot being spread over the junction of the two, making a total of seven spots, from which the species derives both its common and scientific names (from the Latin septem = "seven" and punctata = "spotted") (from Wikipedia).

Marvellous macro of three Lady Birds in mating position, Dr Ahmet.
Sometimes these small point-and-shoot cameras come in handy, as is evident from this sharp, crisp and colourful picture.
Well done and thanks for sharing it.

Hola Ahmet.
Un bello momento capturado en esta imagen. La nitidez de alto nivel, asi como el enfoque ideal donde se aprecia con claridad los tres bellos insectos que lucen de maravilla en esa pose.

Selam Ahmet,
A lovely capture of these beautiful seven spot lady birds mating. Excellent sharp details and a nice composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Gümaydin Ahmet,
A fine and interesting macro taken with your compact, a pair of Seven-spot Ladybirds in copulo being visited by a second male, presumably attracted by the pheromones.
The latera POV shows the scene with fine sharpness and good use of flash without too many reflections.
Tesekkürler dostum ve eline saglik,

Salam akhi Prof. Ahmet,
wow...this is an exciting train of beetle. well captured and well seen in excellent sharpness. I like the shines of the wings and the clarity of the flower petals.
Excellent moment well captured.


Dear Ahmet

A quite good quality for a pocket camarea, at least at the TN-size. The picture , although the black background is not ideal from my point of view, is very pleasant and... surprising! I see 3 mating ladybirds :-)

Kind regards


Ciao Ahmet, too hard for TN, two male and one female, in Italy this is "ammucchiata", fantastic macro with wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Ahmet bey selamlar,
sıradışı ..!
Detay ve renkler ile kompozisyon, çok iyi.

Hello Ahmet.
Well, this is nature , a perfectly sharp capture of that cute triple,thank you for sharing this fine macro shot with us.Best regards Siggi

Uğurlar ola Ahmed'im,
Bir kez iyi fotoğraf çekmenin tekniği kavranınca, ekipman basit de olsa nefis tespitler yapılabiliyor. Sevimli Coccinella triosunun gayreti bana bizim de denizlerimizde bulunan bir gastropodu, Crepidula fornicata'yı hatırlattı. Tür adına odaklananlar ne demek istediğimi anlarlar...

Merhaba Ahmet Hocam,
Çok enteresan bir makro çalışması olmuş.Ne olup bittiğini doğrusu tam anlayamadım:)Renkler,kontrast,netlik ve kmpozisyon mükemmel olmuş.Selamlar,ellerinize sağlık..

Merhaba Ahmet bey,
Nice capture and great sharp result for a compact camera. The colours are impressive. I think this (attempt of) mating with 3 beetles is quite usual among beetles. The power of pheromones... Iyi geceler,

This is a stunning macro, my brother Ahmet!
Simply awesome!
Very well done with this 'threesome'!!

Merhaba Ahmet hocam,

Siyah arka fon üzerine çok güzel ve çok ilginç bir görüntü.
Kim? ne? nerede? ne zaman? nasıl niçin? kısaca 5N 1K :)

Elinize sağlık hocam.
