[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A temporary new home and I've just got my internet connection back for a while so to celebrate a picture from my new garden. signs of summer in the UK at last?

After finally moving back to Yorkshire, not that I mind Lancashire but its good to be back home, I was out in the garden with my camera. I was snapping away at all the insects which were finally showing a bit of life then I spotted this little ladybird on some reeds near the pond. I lowered my aperture and the sunlight was out just in time to catch it before it fell back into the reeds not to be seen again that afternoon… Guess she gave up for the day…

PP: framed nothing more

Nice shot Ben
I like the way the lady bug is the main focal point, well done.
Thanks for sharing

a great shot of such a little ladybug, personally i'm not a fan of them. Their like ants, always get into the house and their's a ton of them crawling all over the place.

a great mix of vibrancy and symmetry!

Hey Ben, Nice to see you again!
The DOF is great here! Only the ladybug and the leaf in front are in focus however some would say it's a bit centered! :)))

Hello Ben, great plesure to my fair buddy ;) Is glad to be back home & is great to be home to TL family!!!

I like much the graphism POV in this shot. The line work at the back in different form & shape / gradient tone have create DOF. For my personal taste, is too center of the main subject of Lady buck. Hope you don't mind.

Have a great day!

Hi Ben,

Beautiful visual, I liked you
lady bug, beautiful colors and her I think
lady of every green east.
Great composition, Angry!

Very nice DOF. The red ladybug's color is very nice and vivid against the green leaves. TFS.
