Just a bug
Posted By: Heinrich Lohmann, 05-05-2008, 10:24 PM

Last week when I did the African Violet pictures I noticed that some had aphids on them. I went outside and got a couple of ladybugs and put them on the african violets, today I saw one of them and of course had to take some pictures.





K10D with DFA 2.8 100 macro, 360 wireless.

Comments are always welcome.

Both excellent captures, but I really like the last one. The composition, lighting, and colors are really great.

Heinrich, the lady bug is well captured. You got some good details on the bug itself.

Heinrich,

I saw this image while at work today but didn't have time to comment. I have always had a little trouble with these little guys (Japanese beetles too) but I think you did a great job nailing this guy. The second image is my favorite of the two as the composition and perspective is just fantastic.
