Hello Servane,
I have tried to capture ladybugs several times with my 100 mm macro, but never came to satisfying results. This is a beautiful image with a nice shallow depth of field (which I happen to like in macro shots). I dutch the name is lieveheersbeestje (maybe best translated: little animal of the dear Lord). Childrens name is maybe better: pim-pam-poentje
REgards, Jacob
