[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ladybirds, ladybugs or lady beetle... They are generally considered useful insects as many species feed on aphids or scale insects, which are pests in gardens, agricultural fields, orchards, and similar places.

The family name comes from its type genus, Coccinella. Coccinellids are found worldwide, with over 5,000 species described.

Some people consider seeing them or having them land on one's body to be a sign of good luck to come, and that killing them presages bad luck. Well... as for this picture, Im only considering to have the picture of this sexy lady.

Absolutely stunning! I like the combination of red and green colours. The leaf with its hairy and shiny texture is really eye-catching. Detail of the ladybugs eyes and legs is good. I am sure any male bug would think this female is indeed sexy.
Kind regards

awesome macro-shot! :-) i just cannot make up my mind which i like more - the pretty red beetle
or the interesting green leaf which the rolled up ends. superb job & best wishes, thor.
