[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi friends in TN,

I am posting another spider with a ladybird moving toward each other on a weed early in the morning. The spider is so tiny as the ladybird is already so small. The way they are positioned, my guess is, their path is not going to meet.

Thanks for viewing.

hello Jusni

2-in-1! Wow, very good harvest for single composition! Nice diagonal layout of the branch/stem and very nice clarity/sharpness focus under the bright light.

f/20! That is superb sharpness and the bugs have no chance to escape the focus capture, and still able to give nice bokeh effect.

If you place something on the path of the ladybug, perhaps their destiny can improve slightly?

Great work.

tfs, bill

Hello Jusni,
A fine capture of both the Ladybird and the Spider on the same stem in an excellent diagonal composition. It looks like both the ladybird and the spider are looking for small insects among the small brown flowers on this grass stem.
Thanks for sharing this,
Best regards,

Lovely macro work here Jusni.

Hi Jusni,
A nice capture of this beautiful lynx spider and the beautiful ladybird bug. Superb details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Aha! the mystery unfolds eh Jusni? I suspect you might have more of this action...very nicely done and again looking very good as a Nikon should! True colours!

Salam Jusni,
a lovely capture of the creatures on a great diagonal line of a branch. Hard to get and harder to composed I believe. With a great skill you depict them very well.
Excellent presentation.


NB: How unfortunate it is to lose some of the treasure. Never mind you have the whole wekk to add to your collection-- holiday .
