Hi Nelly

Welcome to TN. This is a great macro shot. Excellent POV, sharp details, nice composition and a great subject



Welcome to TN nelly.
I like this picture. moment n Your DOF is very nice. Good macro


Yes, what are these two doing together, Nelly?
Because Ladybugs are vegetarians, I presume.
Great first image.
Welcome to TN!

He has just hatched from the pupa as that is the case of the larvae under it, its shell is still pale and soft and it will probably eat the shell. I used to breed them.

A well composed image!

Attractive colours, DOF spot on!

Pablo -

Hello Nelly!
This is a very "fresh" specimen, and this "thing" is its earlier "skin" (this is a rest - exuvium - of its pupa). After a few hours this insect will be red with (probably - but it depends on species) some black dots :)
Very nice documentary photo :)
