I’ve been going through my recent Ladybird beetle snaps, and can’t quite believe I have taken so many photos of them!
This one is a two spot ladybird up close and personal on a leaf. I love how the colours are so vibrant and I can’t believe how shiny the little bug is! Even the veins and patterns on the leaf look good. I really love how the left hand side of the leaf is slightly less defined with all focus on the ladybird and the leaf in front of it.
There are about 5,000 different species of ladybirds in the world. These much little beauties are also known as lady beetles or ladybugs because as suggested they’re beetles not bugs.
The natural light was so good that this image taken with my Nikon in macro mode, needed no post production.
