Hi friends in TN,

This is a tiny ladybug captured crawling on the grass locally know as "rumput pahit" or bitter grass. These grasses are common in Malaysian lawn and rough area of the golf courses. The image was captured almost around noon with the aid of the fill flash.

Thanks for viewing!

Hello jusni, My neighbor. I was about to post on a Ladybird or Ladybug similar to the you have posted but on a flower. Then dropped at the last moment. Nice shot with good color saturation. Rgds Ganesh

Hallo Jusni
Great image with strong and vivid colours. I have never had success capturing ladybirds. They always fly away when I approach them. Although your main subject is the ladybird, I want to compliment you on the clarity of the hair on the leaves in your image. The photography here is really super. It has a golden colour to it and that aspect adds extra oomph to this lovely image. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Salam Jusni,
it is not possible to shoot a lady among the grasses. This one so striking in its excellence red, lady in red.
The shining armour must have caught your attention as well as us, and the superb macro lens of your definite never let you down in presenting the best of nature.
The plash light is nicely tamed as not to put in a harsh reflection to the beautiful pattern on the lady's back.
well captured in beauty of its elegance.

Best regards,

Hello Jusni !
This ladybug looks like a small jewel, and I also love the contrast between the red bug and the green leaves. Vivid colors, wonderful composition and POV, and the white frame compliments the picture very nicely. Very well done !
