Love the first more than the second. Just a personal observation. Great work!

Hi Steve

The rich colours of the first really sell the photo for me, as well as the interesting angle / composition. Feels like I'm 'with' the lady bug.

I like the second also, however it feels more 'conservative' and more of an 'observation' of an insect. Maybe slightly awkward dof, (eg foreground vs insect part in focus vs background). but still nice.

Was the ladybug being cooperative (i.e. fairly still?) Yesterday I took some photos of a potentially deadly spider which was under my BBQ (a red back, which can kill with its sting if untreated) and it was moving all the time. So I don't think I got a good shot. I eventually killed it, as I had children round today - and don't like the risk of it finding its way into my home.

Cheers, thanks for sharing.

Paul

Thanks Paul. I agree about the first photo. It's my favorite. Yes, the Lady Bugs were being very cooperative. Even if they did move I was able to just pick them up and re-deposit them were I wanted. That's something you could never do with a red back. Well, not more than once I would imagine.

Thanks for your feedback, I always appreciate your perspective.

Steve
