[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Les coccinelles sont carnivores et se nourrissent de puçerons, de même que leurs larves.
La coccinelle pond des oeufs blancs réunis en groupes sur des feuilles abritant des pucerons. Les larves, d'abord noires grandissent assez vite et deviennent d'un gris ardoisé avec des taches jaunes ou rougeâtres avec des points noirs.

Hello Claude,
nice to see a larva of Coccinella septempunctata instead of Harmonia axyridis.
You show a perfect picture of this larva with all the details nicely seen.
Perfect background to present the larva.
Best wishes, Peter

Interesting content, Claude.

Hi Claude

Excellent macro - great detail and colour here.


Hallo Claude
What a lovely bright coloured larva. Trek Nature is the most educational and valuable way of discovering nature out there and there is no tutor fees involved. I cannot wait to find the time to look through the huge variety of excellent photos. The details on this larva is really spectacular. A great shot, with strong and vibrant colours. Great point of view. I kind of fancy the spikes on the body. Good focus, well framed and presented in an excellent manner. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hello laude,
What a splendid capture of the Ladybird larva in a fine position on the leaf. Good use of the fill-flash and excellent sharpness and fine colours. Very nicely framed too!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Claude.
Wonderful composition of impressive caterpillar and so nice leaf. As usual, flash work and exposure parameters are great as well as the colours of the image and razor sharpness of the pictured objects. Well done and TFS.
