Hi Sebastien,

Funny capture & title. Is he really eating the fly?? I'd never think a ladybug would do that...

Good capture of a special moment though, the image is impressive, the composition is well-seen.

Well done & TFS.

Hi Sebastien,
A fine and unique macro with excellent DOF and colours.

Bonjour Sébastien. Superbe ta photo bravo !
Est-ce le nouveau test de contrôle des morpions au Canada ?
HI - sans rancune.
Amicalement. Patrick

Strange scene. I've never witness an adult ladybug eating anything. I didn't know they could be after a so big prey, nor after a dead one. I can't imagine the ladybug was the killer.

Well done Sebastian,
I was looking at your gallery and "I eat his butt" just hit me in the face ;-}}
Great close up of this butt chewing action..I don't think I've ever seen a ladybug eating a flies butt before..a first!! :)

Hi Sebastien,
NIce darmatic nature image. Good exposure, timing and composition.

Hello Sebastien,
I have never seen a ladybug eating fly! Very interesting capture. Aslo quite nice in technical terms althought in my opinion slightly oversharpened.
Best greetings and TFS!
