beautiful shot, the composition is wonderful. I like the DOF and the OOF BG lets the lady bird stand out very well. Colors, lighting and POV are wonderful.
Best regards Siggi

Join the crowd...today is national or make it international NOT know the bug day....Ivan is probably running in circles with all of us:-) He had to help me on mine after I got 3 others saying 3 different things...My thought was just to name it pretty bug:-)
This one indeed looks like a gratiusm otius sanctum pacum deus. that translates to "Pretty Bug"

Hi Haraprasan. I am sure you will get the ID from someone soon. I have had a look in my books but nothing with these markings. You have taken it withgood detai land natural looking colours. well done TFS.

Difficult to get a good DOF from above when photographing a round species of Ladybird, but the markings show well. I can't help with the ID but your suggestion sound good.
It contrasts well with the BG leaf and is clear enough for a coleopterist to ID it.
Thanks for sharing this,

Aunque el foco podría mejorar :-) un buen documento sin duda. Estos pequeños coleópteros me encantan.

Hi, these tiny beetles are always mysterious as there is less data available freely to identify it. but much efforts are already done in India and elsewhere to get all detailed info on beetles up for us. i had clicked a similar one, and someone helped me ID it as Cheliomenes sexmaculata, beetles IDed through photograph are not 100% accurate. but this is a near-similar specimen. please go through the following link to read on details about this cute Ladybird - http://www.aphidweb.com/aphidbioagents/Cheilomenes.htm

My dear friend,
Can not resist your six-spotted zigzag Ladybird. Truly unusual sight - but usual, perfect photographic technique from you!
I am amazed at the bright markings, I would have thought it attracts everybody who wants to eat a Ladybird...
Did it have markings underneath as well?
Thank you for sharing this unusual insect.
Have a nice evening
