I was immediately reminded of an excerpt from William Shakespeare's works.

Sweet are the uses of adversity
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head

(As You Like It II. I)

Great color matching even if serendipitously.
Aloha

Thanks Selvin,

I am honored if my photo can evoke Shakespeare. Thanks for the quote.

That's just cool. The ladybug really adds.

Beautiful! I saw your other ladybug shots in another part of the forum. The color of the ladybug is so vivid.

Thanks Mike, It was slightly overcast that day so I boosted the light with a little fill flash. I think that really helped the color saturation.

Cheers, Steve
