|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Hi All , though I wish this shot had come out a bit better , I still like it enough to share , I am not exactly sure what happened to wash the backside out like that perhaps a flare or something , I was not using my hood , and have yet to get any polarizer filter, I prefer not to use the hood because it lessens how close I can get to the subject without frightening it off.|
this is picture 2 of 2 of this ladybug , it was not in the mood for my closing proximity , I was amazed to see that both landed in fair focus , it was breezy and the grass stalk was less than still , at this range the field on a 105mm macro is very shallow I have read in the product documentation that closeup attachments can be used to deepen the field , but that they have a side effect of lessening the reproduction ratio , I am considering that as an option.
the wiki has a good write up on this insect , including pictures of its stages of development , I have seen two of these stages but had no idea that it was a developing ladybug , now I have a new subject to watch for.

Fine action capture of this Ladybird. Strange hazy effect you've got around it but in a way it is quite effective. Gereat focus on the front of the insect and I like the open wing cases. Beautiful colours and very well composed too.
TFS and regards, Ulla
You're right a nice shot to share! I like the way you can see its wings spreading to such a larger size than its body.
Great colours, details, and sharpness.
A very good composition.
Your comment is very interesting.
All the best!

Stunning shot showing what ladybugs keep under their forewings.
They change the silhouette completely!
You captured the moment perfectly!
