    hah ... ladybug is American :) ladybird - British :) that's the difference here :) and I was taught British English :). But I'm not an expert here :)
    Well I didn't made any postprocessing - it is just how it turned out :)

    Im British and im with mentos on this one, Ladybird :)

    as for the photo, i like it but its a pity his face is in the shadow. I thought the selection you posted in the other thread had better examples, expecially the first one

    Super English lesson on this one going on here :D Thank for that!
    Must still work my way through the gallery - after having missed three whole days, I am frightfully lagging behind all the new entries there, so I still can't say anything about your ladybird photos there (was taught British English, too ;))... I like this one and would wish I could ever get close-ups of this kind in my life (and I like to know your name at last, Aleksandra (!!!!) - and how it spells).

    yep - smallest bird i've ever seen. the thought of crushing a bird -- just doesn't sound right.

    I think the shot overall well done. The color saturation and composition are both spot on, but I wish the focus was tighter on the upper part of the "ladybird" as opposed to the curve of it's back and legs.

    wow, a great moment in time, i almost want to say "hang on little buddy." Like MaxBloom said if the focus was tighter on the upper body it would be nice, but non-the-less very well done.
