Brilliant colors. A masterpiece.
DOF is often to shallow in macrophotography. You managed to include quite a lot of individuals and details within the DOF. Well done.
The white one look something different. I'm afraid the ladybug won't make any difference.

Stuning this macro!
You got a remarkable details on the ladybug, so sharp and clear, and very good the light reflection on their black body.
And the group of aphids adds action to the scene, besides the color accent over the plain green background.
I like so much the DOF value used, their effect on the blur range and the composition made.
Congratulations, thanks for share and my best regards,

This is really a very interesting picture also from the documentary point of view! This ladybird among aphids looks like a wolf hunting for sheep! ;)
I really like this composition with nice colours and good DOF (in some parts of picture it would be better).
Bravo also for the idea for picture! :)

Terrific macro of the beetle - the aphids appear enormous. Is it possible that the red spots are parasitic mites?

Realmente una estupenda macro Chris con gran punto de vista y encuadre para captar una maravillosa escena.
Los intensos colores contrastantes con el fondo realzan la belleza de la presentación con buen foco y agudeza, aunque personalmente creo que el DOF ha sido escaso, más teniendo en cuenta el fondo de la misma... F6.3 o más aun hubiese beneficiado la estética de la imagen.
De todas maneras, es una excelente entrega... gracias por compartirla.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo
Really a stupendous macro Chris with great point of view and framing to capture a wonderful scene.
The intense colors contrasting with the bottom enhance the beauty of the presentation with good focus and sharpness, although personally I believe that DOF has been scarce, more keeping in mind the bottom of the same one... F6.3 or more even has benefitted the aesthetics of the image.
Anyway, it is an excellent post... thank you for sharing.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo
