Default HS10-Ladybug Lifecycle, Ants & z-Fly

Some HS10 shots of a ladybug's lifecycle with basic sharpening and a little NR applied; EXIF is attached.

I also have photos of ladybug eggs but they are from a non-Fuji camera. Comments and/or suggestions always appreciated.

The Ladybug:


The Puppa:


The Larvae (I added a good deal of saturation to enhance details of the larvae):


Ladybug Gymnastics:


A Fly with a red mite attached to his side:



And an ant on a thistle:

These are very very.......very...not excellent but superior images.

My eyes are not hurt at all by color anomalies and that says a lot. Best shots as of yet.

You sure did your homework. These images are clean! I can wipe my hand on it and it will feel as smooth as silk.

Very impressive images. Great job with the stages of the life cycle, too. Are these cropped? The DOF would be amazing at this magnification. if not.

For those interested in the insects themselves, I did a similar thing with a different species of lady beetle a few years ago (not quite as close, though) - follow the links in the threads (a series of three) for more natural history, plus a bit of humor:

Thank you Arjan & Penolta!

Penolta, the ladybug, the larvae, the fly, these all filled the frame. The puppa is a crop. Also, I really enjoyed your series and want to say thank you for sharing the link.
