[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
The Coccinellidae (/ˌkɒksɪˈnɛlɪdaɪ/)[3] are a family of small beetles, ranging from 0.8 to 18 mm (0.0315 to 0.708 inches).[4] They are commonly yellow, orange, or scarlet with small black spots on their wing covers, with black legs, heads and antennae. Such colour patterns vary greatly, however; for example, a minority of species, such as Vibidia duodecimguttata, a twelve-spotted species, have whitish spots on a brown background. Coccinellids are found worldwide, with over 5,000 species described.(wikipédia)

Hello Roland,
Great presentation of this cute little ladybug. Focus is very sharp and colors are true and natural. I love the way it is framed inside the eaten portion of the leaf. The white balance is perfect and the exposure is right on the money. Well done!!

bonsoir Roland
excellente profil de cette coccinelle, elle tourne la tête juste assez pour qu'on ppuisse voir sa tête, l'insecte est d'une parfaite netteté
superbe composition
Passe une bonne nuit

Tremendously sharp macro of this cute little Ladybird, Roland.
The composition is also very charming with that frayed leaf on which the subject is settled.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful image.

Hi Roland
The beetle looks great in this composition, where the little green bug is a bonus.
Good DOF, perfect focus and nice colors.
