    I left a comment on another of your pictures claiming ants were the best subjects for macro work of insects........I completely forgot about ladybirds. So much character to this little guy, almost looks like he's clinging on for dear life.

    Awesome work.

    Yep Americans call em Ladybugs... Don't know why. Say Danny would it be okay if I tried to draw this one for a series of ladybugs that I'm doing on artcards?

      The background is actually going to be the hardest part... I'm not that good at doing the fuzzy out of focus areas but that's part of what makes it cool so I'll do my best

      Yeah that's really easy to do with a camera haha. But I can certainly understand that would be very difficult. I can't draw nor paint at all :P

      I'm working the background now and giving him.. or her a little greener pasture to crawl around in LOL Yeah when I used to paint it was esay to do the blurred bits but in drawing with colored pencils it's kinda hard because you really have to lay on the layers of color and try not to make them to precise. :-) You're a great photographer!!! I really suck at taking pictures

    i always enjoy images of ladybirds (do you call hese animals in english ladybirds?),
    but i never tried myself making any effort to shoot a pic of them myself,
    dunno why, i admire the photographer who does,
    strange,
    anyway, i love the pictures very much, and i admire the quality of the images

      Thank you very much for the great comment Phil!

      Ladybirds is indeed the English word for it. I think Americans call it Ladybug.

      i also got one of these bugs http://www.gardensafari.net/pics/wantsen/schildwantsen/zicrona_caerulea_hs7_2900.jpg
      mine was perched on a flowering thistle and was bluey green with long black antennas

      when i took this bug photo a bumble bee flew straight in front of my 18-55mm lens (20D) and also landed on the same thistle that this bug was on finally i got a bee with its wings in flight too
