Hi Stany. Did you discover the ladybird after taking the image or before you took it? ;-)

It was intentionally with the ladybird.
I'm just working on a serie with the complete lifecycle of a ladybird. The only thing I lack are the eggs and the early grub, I'm hunting for them...
kindest regards,

I really like the style Stany - how close are the subjects from the front of the lens? I am guessing just a few centimetres or less?

I've just been thinking that I've never knowingly seen ladybird eggs!

Actually this picture was taken with my 105 AF-S VR + 2xTCeIII (210mm) from 60 cm.(*)

(*) I find the new CS5 bridge fantastic because of the enormous amount of information it gives about the picture, inlcuding the distance from the subject, I'll start a new topic about this in the adobe section.

That is actually very cool :) I think I must have got 2 posts muddled in my head by the way, I was referring to the technique of using wide angle with extension tubes, I liked the style of those images a lot, I was looking on my phone I think.

Keep up the good work, I look forward to hearing your thoughts on CS5 (I might actually have to get Photoshop soon and I have always avoided it at all costs)

I think this way of photographing will be the future when it comes to nature and wildlife photography.
No more the 'stamp-collecting' way, just collecting species, but showing animals as a part of their surroundings.
