    Out of a really good set, I think the first one is excellent, it has a sort of timelessness about it I think.

    nice framing too!

    I reli like the last one, it ahs really rich colours and great DOF. If the Ladybird was facing the other way towards the cam u'd be on to a winner. The other macro shots seem to have harsh lighting which doesnt bring out the colours so well.

    yes #1 great shot, ladybirds make great subjects, great colours, and they actually stay still for quite a while, nice work.

    Dalebe! they stay still you think? Damn, those lil' bastards were really quick! Ok. The one in the last shot was still for about a minute and I thought it was dead, but it didn't wanted to turn itself and pose :) the shots were taken with reversed lens and still, I haven't attached it to my original lens so I handhold it.
    The ladybird in the first shot has accidentaly landed there when I was holding the tulip in my hand to take a hot of it. the bug was huge! I never saw so big ladybird!

    I tried using polarizer to get rid of the reflection on the red part of ladybirds but it seems it didn't work :(

    hah it must have been just that one ladybird that held still for about three minutes for me, it even struck a pose,hey but sometimes it's when you are least expecting it that opportunity occurs as in #1 superb shot.
