[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I did not realise that there were babies bugs round until you see them in the screen.

Harmonia axyridis is a large coccinellid beetle. Its colour ranges from yellow-orange to black, and the number of spots between 0 and 22. It is native to eastern Asia, but has been introduced to North America and Europe to control aphids and scale insects. It is now common, well known and spreading in those regions.

Hello Foozi,
Another macro in splendid bright contrasting colours. Great to see all these baby ladybirds. Excellent sharpness and composition.

Hello Foozi,
fine capture of these mating beetles with some babies as a great bonus. I especially like the good sharpness and the your well chosen POV. Unfortunately you have some overexposed parts due to the use of flash light. But it only disturbs a little bit and only on the upper beetle.
Best wishes

Hello Foozi,
What a fine looking macro of these two mating beetles.
I'm sure if they would have known they would be viewed from all over the world, they would have turned their backs on you;)
I see you also captured some aphids along with them, what a suprise. Very nice!!

Interesting subject and great photo Foozi! Very good composition, wonderful BG, fantastic colours and good sharpness.

have a nice day
