Took these today on one of our rose bushes. Nikon D300 w Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro lens. I love this lens.

#3 I like this one a lot. Only cropped with a tiny bit of brightness added.

Great shots, nr1 and nr4 are ladybugs that I haven't seen before with that white band.

nr1 : best in composition
nr2 : love the detail
nr3 : great viewpoint, the color contrast is perfect
nr4 : miss the head

Cheers

Ronny

ps: great series on smugmug

Love them all Steve......but #3 gets my fav vote. I like the way the ladybug keeps you wondering what's over the edge.

Thanks Mandy, I like that one too. I especially like the pearly luster of the shell.
