Hi Clint,
I am a bit confused when looking at this photo. I know you mentioned that you shot this against a clear blue sky, but I've never seen a sky that has a lighter spot in the center and darker area near the horizon. I might need to look at clear blue skies more often. Something else that really makes me confused is the piece of shining iron just below the top ladybird. It looks as if this is holding the ladybird in place. As if it is glued to its body. All in all, I have a feeling that this is not a real nature shot, but a well controlled studio shot where the ladybirds are props. I do hope that you can prove me wrong, and I will for sure appoligize. But this just doesn't look right.

Hi Clint, this is a wow creative shot! Perfect positioning of the ladybirds on the flower, shows the beauty and harmony of nature. Great colours, dof and nice and sharp. Great light also.

Hi Clint
Agree totally with Niek,
I have mention this before and even asked you about your pictures. They are not natural, the are good studio shots,
the belong on TL instead.
never seen a sky like this before.


Hello Clint,
This is another great composition!!! Depth of field and point of view are just perfect! I like a lot also a BG - very delicate :>
What can I say more? It's simple fantastic!
Best greetings and TFS,
