[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
well i have,nt uploaded for a while so i hope everyone is ok.
this was taken at the weekend, first one of the year and i was really surprised to find him in the back garden, i could,nt resist taking a few shots as all the insects have gone during the cold weather and this was my first oportunity this year for a macro shot.
i dont think i need to add any info for him as it is all available in previous uploads.
happy shooting everyone.

Hermoso cuadro, con bellos colores contrastantes, nitidez y profundidad adecuadas y un lindo fondo esfumado que realza la compo.

Hello Clint,
Maybe ladybird is a banal subject but you photographed it in a way that's certainly not banal :-) I like very much the diagonal composition and nice use of vignetting.
Also the details on the body and well managed light reflexes and simply great!
Best greetings and TFS!

Excellent macro Clint! Amazing details, nice colors and a background that makes your insect stand out very well. TFS!

Hi Clint

Great contrast with this shot. The muted BG and darker corners from the vignetting really makes the red stand out more. Nice and sharp as well.

Excellent photograph! I like the composition, the sharpness of the Lady Bug, and the soft out of focus background. A very clean, well photographed image. Excellent light!

Hi Clint,
Another top quality shot from you, sharp and very well composed. The slightly below eye-level POV makes it a little more unusual.
TFS, cheers, Ivan

what a wonderfully clear and sharp image of my favourite insect.

The detail is excellent and the DOF spot on. I really like the POV as well.

Con la preparación, técnica y calidad habitual Clint, esta macro es realmente filosa con gran luminosidad y condiciones controladas.
Me gustan los colores captados, realmente intensos y naturales.
El encuadre es acorde con el punto de vista captado.

With the preparation, technique and quality habitual Clint, this macro is really razor sharp with great brightness and controlled conditions.
I like captured colors, really intense and natural.
The framing is in agreement with the captured point of view.
