Good Morning Folks!

I enjoy watching ladybugs and how do they behave when not disturbed :)

This was a small ladybug "making it own way" to go to a colorful golden world, a world of yellow flowers where it later perched on for long time. I like the BG here and tried to capture it in this shot.

Hope you enjoy the mood here.

Best greetings,

Hi Paras
Beautiful light and lovely bokeh captured with this tiny visitor however a little more sharpness on the subject is required which you can only get with macro lens or extension tube to give 1:1 view.
Best Wishes

Hi Paras,
Extreme shallow focusing on this bug! A well successful experiment! I like the diagonal branch and the totally blurred green BG.
Nice contrast with the red bug. A minimal composition, yet artistic as usual.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Excellent macro and great use of shallow dof to focus on the ladybug. Nicely framed with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Paras,
A magnificient macro shot. Good bokeh effect at BG, sharp image. I liked diagonal position of branch and light

Indeed the background helped a lot to bring the ladybug to movement.
Great macro.

Cute shot Paras. Simple and pretty. Nicecolor and contrast against a great bg. Focus on the ladybug seems a bit soft but almost deliberate to create the mood. Nice job. TFS, Lori

Hi Paras..this is a well captured macro shot..excellent details and separation from the background.
