Hi Gaetan,

I love the pose of this ladybug. Wonderful colors and details. The blurred flower is beautiful and the background is wonderful.


Well done Gaetan,
These are hard to get right but you've shown great skill in nailing the focus and getting an interesting angle.
I like the smooth, pastel tones of the background and your matching frame.
There's lots of detail to be seen especially around the head area.
Great shot, hope you are well.

Superbe tête de coccinelle, quels détails.

Very good picture of this light coloured Ladybird, Gaetan.
You have turned into a Ladybird specialist.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Gaetan,
Wonderful macro shot of this beautiful and young Ladybird. Immaculate sharpness with fine focus and lovely colours. The neutral BG works wonders here to highlight the subject and good POV to portray it. Fantastic eye buls those. Very nicely composed. Kudos.
