[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this is my first good picture taken on my birth day :D
the picture was taken in beeston :S by fuji finepix s7000 sorry i dont know what plant it is though but it is very dry as you can see.Ladybirds emerge from hibernation from February onwards, sometimes earlier in the south.They mate in May and June and the females lay tiny yellow-green eggs in groups of up to 50, often on the underside of leaves. One female may lay more than 2,000 in her lifetime if she has enough to eat. ladybirds are red because The ladybird's bright colours warn predators such as ants and birds that it's not good to eat. When disturbed or handled it secretes oily, foul-smelling yellow fluid from its legs as a further warning so it's best to leave ladybirds on plants where they belong.

Hello Aaron,
Welcome to TN.
This a very nice macro.
The composition is good and the POV (point of view)very good also,showing the blue sky background.
A note is required at TN.
You could tell us where,how you got the shot and also a little info about your subject.
Have a look at some of the other members postings to get an idea about what I mean.
Good work,TFS

Nice macro. I love the colors in this photo - sky, insect and ???

What is that thing it is crawling on? A dried plant of some sort. Where was this plant? What kind of plant? Hmmmmm.

I like it.

Hi Aaron from far (or not far?) Ukraine.
Welcome to our nice world named TN. Very nice first sharing shot. Amazing choice of pictured scene: dead flower, colourful ladybird and pictorial blue cloudy a bit sky. I like your low point of view, excellent sharpness and details of the image and wonderful rich colours. My best wishes.
In waiting for your new pictures,
