Excellent composition and presentation. The ladybug is positioned perfectly on the diagonal of the frame. Contrasting colors add much appeal. Well done.

Hi Hillary. Nice color contrast between the ladybug and the flowers and well balanced composition. Regards, Yvonne
Colours beautiful,did you use backing flash?or what is that light back of ladybird is it sun's reflection? Yes in Turkey we call them "ugur bocegi" believed brings luck,when find one just hold on finger tip and say "uc, uc, uc"meaning "fly,fly,fly"and it flies away :)..Super shot superb colours well done...Eray

You have taken a photo of a pretty bug with great composition. I really liked the vivid colors. Your garden infact maybe infested by aphids. And therefore there maybe ladybugs. You might want to check on your plants where you see the lady bugs because aphids are known to consume the plants.

This is very nice Hil! Those colors are really stunning! This is really purple isn't it :-) I like this nice composition, exposure and brilliance on the insect. I think that the WS worked well as it is for sharpness (which was good at the start) Well done!
PS, very interesting notes too
funny, have you got purple grape hyacinths mine are all blue, nice ladybird though.

this presentation is very bold, but I like it. I works very well whith the whimsical lady bird character. POV, crop and composition are very nice.

Hello Hil, lovely colours on this one. The Ladybird contrasts very well with the hyacinth flowers. I think the focus could be a little bit sharper. Nice work.
Nice to see you like Motogp...me too, Valentino to win of course :-)

Lovely shot Hil. I like the colour harmony and the great mounting too!
Thanks for welcoming me to Trek Nature. I appreciate your visit and the positive critique you left me. I am sure I’ll enjoy every moment and that my knowledge about nature and everything involved will grow daily.
Although this is not your latest posting, I wanted to critique this specific one. On browsing through your portfolio, my eye caught this photo of the ladybird on the purple flowers. I must admit I like the flowers more than the ladybird, maybe because I just that love the colour purple. I don’t see in your notes that you make mention of what kind of flower it is. I might be wrong, but it seems to have some kind of a wax layer on it. The combination of the ladybirds colours and that of the flowers are eye-catching. Thanks for sharing.
