|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
We were trekking in Yanik creek near Sapanca lake in November. At resting, when I noticed this bug, I'm surprised to seeing it in the last days of the november. Then I saw they are abundant in the surroundings.
It's Halyzia sedecimguttata - Orange ladybird. There is a look alike that Cream-spot ladybird (Calvia quatuordecimguttata). If you don't select one which is that you photographed, you can count the spots. Which has got sixteen spots is Halyzia sedecimguttata. Calvia quatuordecimguttata has got fourteen spots. Orange ladybird bigger then cream-spot.
I have the photo of the Cream-spot ladybird, will add it later.

Great capture of detail, color, and textures for such a small creature. The color is very interesting. I've never seen a lady bug like this one!
lindo inseto, as cores estão muito boas e a composição excelente! Belo trabalho!!!

this is like something from a wildlife book illustrated for artists.
its so natural yet is a microcosm of art and creativity...
diagonal stick and the wrappings of vegetation all make a well filled image with impressive tones which are good against the creatures colouring..
