    Interesting subject and very good use of shallow depth of field, Pat. I like it.

    Re: Ladybird

    is this what you wanted a centered picture that says "click" a ladybird ... (lady-bug" in the USA)

    How about rotate to an up-hill motion and a bit more environment? (The shoot was to tight for me to re-compose as an example to you, sorry. I try to SHOW folks what I mean)

    Superb shot, and a brilliant example of what that lens can do in the right hands

    Wonderful to see the ladybird in such perfect condition, being so newly emerged.

    Classic shot of a newly emerged 7 spot ladybird, Pat. The colour will gradually darken over a few days/weeks.

    They appear to lick, or eat, part of the pupal casing after emerging; which is what this one is doing. But I'm not sure of the reason. Perhaps there is some easily available moisture or protein there.
