Here we see a disappointed lady bug in this spring-snowflake (Leucojum vernum).
I was astonished to see this red guy there so early in the year.

Nicely done. I like the combination of elements (flower and ladybug). But why is she disappointed (no aphids)?

Very good picture with good details and good lighting(no reflections seen in the shield of the coccinella septipunctata)!
Like POV an DOF is very good.

Hello Sabine!

Nice capture. The excellent shaprness and exposure render beautiful details all over. The whites show a lot of texture. The composition is well balanced.

Great shot and TFS.

What a beautiful composition, Sabine.
The white petals are gorgeous. You really handled the exposure well on them. The colors are stunning. The details are great, and it looks the ladybug is in his house with decorations sticking out. A very interesting image.
TFS. : )


Very good detail - I like these bugs and have a few of them on the site. Good job


herzlichen glückwunsch zum ersten marienkäfer,
sabine! :-)
ein wunderbares macro mit tollen details.
der marienkäfer an sich ist ja schon klasse,
aber die pollenstände dazu runden das photo
sehr gut ab.
danke & viele grüße,

hi sabine
le blanc pailleté de la fleur est tres beau et la coccinelle tres nette.tres bonne macro.

Hi Sabine,
Lovely colors and an interesting composition/POV. Very good DOF, with the WHOLE scene in @ F32.
You know, I've never used it..Well exposed..

What a nice composition that you have well done ! Petals are like snow ;-) Congratulations Sabine and thanks for sharing.

Hello Sabine,
You shouldn't be that astonished because Ladybirds are one of first insects to be seen at Spring.
This is very nice picture with great colours and perfectly managed exposure.I'm not entirely sure about the framing though, I have feeling it could've been stronger.
Overall, well done on this one!

Hallo Sabine,
die Farbkontraste sind super. Die Schaerfe und Bildschnitt wieder hervoragend. Bei uns haben sich die Kaefer nich nicht blicken lassen; kein Wunder denn gestern hatten wir nochmal ein wenig Schnee.

Hello Sabine, nice shot. Good exposure and details, I think the compositon could be a little better, it's hard to see if this is a photo of the flower or bug. To make the bug the star I would crop some off from the right. Well done.

Hi Sabine,
A superb macro. Very vivid and beautiful colors. I love the composition and framing of this shot. Nice sharp detail.
Great work!

excellent macro as ever. Spring is definitley springing now.

I found 3 in the house on Monday and 1 in the garden... 3 different types of Ladybird in total..

Hello Sabine,
This is superb, I like it very much. pov,dof, focusing, sharpnes, composition all are incredible. Congratulations and thanks for sharing...

Hallo Sabine,
phantastischer Mikrokosmos!
Herrliches Foto von exzellenter Schärfe
und wunderbarer Farbbalance. Der Käfer uind die Blütendetails des Schneeglöckchens sind außerordentlich gut wiedergegeben, das Weiß der Blüte glitzert wie Schnee, das alles sieht sehr ungewöhnlich und faszinierend aus.
Mit Dank und besten Frühlingsgrüßen,

Big Smile!

very good,I like yuor photo

What a beautiful photo! It's like a fairytale photo. What is a ladybug in German: mai kiefer or something like that..so that would put them out in May. This little fellow is an early bloomer.
The colors are so rich and vivid and the detail is amazing. Lovely!
