A pic for the "Time of Love" theme, I think that not needed notes about this species of ladybird that everybody knows.Have a nice week!

Una foto per la serie "time of love",penso che non occorrano le note riguardo a questa specie di coccinella che tutti conoscono..buona settimana!

Hi Luciano,
Is there a "sunday theme" here on TN like the "friday theme" on TrekLens? I missed something, as it seems. :-) Nice exposure, textures, sharpness. And what a sexy lady... :-D
Thanks for sharing, best wishes, László

Ciao Luciano

Great macro of this couple of Hippodamia mating in a diagonal align. Very nice composition, excellent clarity and sharpness very good management of yellow color. I think that it is a little bit highlighted. I made a sample in WS. In case you dont like put it out. Due to great variation of spots only genitalia are the safe key for species. It could be H. parenthesis. Thanks for sharing.

Ciao Luciano, violazione della privacy ma gran macro, mica facile riprendere i due sporcaccioni così bene, ottimi dettagli e favolosa nitidezza, bravissimo anche qui, ciao Silvio
PS ci hai ragione, la foto di ieri su TE me ne son passato con la lavatrice :)

Bonjour Luciano,

Jolie composition avec ce couple Hippodamia, belle netteté et couleurs.
Le B/G accompagne magnifiquement, merci pour le partage.

Hello Luciano,
A great shot of these two love birds or should I say lady birds:) Sharp focus and just the right exposure shows off these two very nicely.
The only thing I question is the color which seems to be a little too yellowish green on my monitor. I did a WS to see what I could come up with, but only you know what the scene actually looked like.
Have a great weekend!

Friend Luciano, I'm trying to get back on track after a long period of more than idle, for various personal issues.
This is a brilliant picture, with all the joy of living.
Make love, Ladybug, not war! hahaha

Bonsoir Luciano,

La feuille aide au cadrage de l'image. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des insectes en action. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne soirée.

retour en arrière, car j'adore ces petites bêtes :)
Très beau moment, avec une présentation nette et colorée.
