[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Voilà une coccinelle qui nous vient de Chine et qui semble faire partie des espèces envahissantes.
C'est une Harmonia axyridis introduite en Europe pour la lutte biologique. Elle se nourrit de puçerons,de psylles et de cochenilles avec une grande voracité.
En WS la larve.

Hello Claude,
pretty good picture with great depth of field showing the entire ladybird with superb sharpness
in spite of the frontal view. You achieved peculiar colour nuances and tones, probably due to the flash.
Best wishes, Peter

Bonsoir Claude!

Qu'elle soit de Chine ou d'ailleurs, elles est toujours plaisante à voir, surtout si elle a été si bien mise en scène comme tu sais si bien le faire...

Hello Claude,

This is a very nice insect and you have shown it very well in this close-up. You have chosen a good DOF so that head, thorax and part of the body are sharply shown. The light you have used is very nice therefore colors are so saturated and vivid.

Thank you for sharing,
Cristian

Hi Claude.
Wonderful subject and great macro shot. It is a pity a bit that your lanes has only f/16. Would be very interesting to place tiny insects in focus too. Sharpness and details of the ladybird is awesome. Lighting and BG are superb too. Well done and TFS.

Hi Claude, I like this macro very much. The clarity of the small beetle is superb even down to the tiny hairy legs. Good colours. TFS. Murray.
