[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ladybugs are said to bring luck - this is what I wish to all TN members for 2007 and hope that the community will develop in the right direction.

The beetle shown was lucky - I think - and enjoyed the warm autumn sun resting on a leaf.

About Coccinella septempunctata many words were said at TN. So it's not necessary to repeat them here.
With respect to the old leaf, you can see the traces of life: holes, degraded pigments and fungi growing on the surface.

- natural bright sun light
- ISO 200
- hand held
- uncropped
- reduction of background noise

Hi Peter,
Good luck to you and your fine lady (bird). Cute bug, amazing low POV, very nice and impressive BG, precisely selected DOF and perfect lighting and colours. I also like the great sharpness and details of this charming bug so much.
My best wishes and TFS.

Hello Peter,
Seven spot Ladybird, seventh year of the second millenium, there must be at least seven reasons for posting this popular beetle.
In addition this is a fine sharp shot, with excellent POV and DOF: a textbook illustration.
Well done and best wishes to you and your family for 2007!

Well done Peter.
I like it. Nice and sharp with just the right DOF. Great color, detail, POV, and exposure.
Nice job on the BG noise too :)
Good luck in 07 to you as well.
Happy New Year!

Hallo Peter,
vielen Dank für diesen Glückskäfer. Dieses Tier ist mein Problemkäfer. Irgendwie habe ich es bisher nie geschafft ein gutes Foto von dieser Species zu schießen. Immer hatte ich Schwierkeiten mit der Tiefenschärfe. -
Sehr schönes Marienkäfer Makro. Sehr gute Schärfe, Tiefenschärfe und schön ins Bild gestellt. Sehr gutes Mittagslicht lässt den Käfer plastisch erscheinen. Eine sehr gute Arbeit. Vielen Dank für das sehr schöne Makro.
Ich wünsche Dir und Deiner Familie einen guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr.
Lieben Gruss aus Ostwestfalen.

Good luck to you, yoo!
Nice shot, colorfull and details.

Hi Peter
It is a beautiul photo. I made some changes. Now your lucky ladybird is more prominent. Is is just another point of view and different composition.
Thanks for great lucky post
Very best wishes for 2007

Hallo Peter,

Auch Dir alles Gute für 2007!
Mit besten Grüßen,
