That is perfect timing. Love the shallow DOF here!

David Humphreys on September 29, 2011

Any credit for the timing must go to the Ladybird. It took off just as I released the shutter :)

Lovely marco here. Perfect DOF and all that photographer talk stuff. The clarity is good and can see detail. Most of all the timing was perfect. This is an amazing action shot. Keep up the good work!

Thanks Ray.

Macro work is frustrating and fun in equal measures. Most macros look good on the camera's screen but when you download them they're mostly not as good as you thought they were. You can imagine my delight when I saw this on my monitor. Only a tiny fraction of my shots turn out this good.

Lovely shot G. I know what you mean when you get a shot that meets the promise of the viewfinder.

Very nice

Don't you love that lucky feeling! Of course, it isn't all luck, but still a good feeling. Like 4.

One of your most impressive photo of ladies, Galatas :) It is no wonder to see and even photograph a ladybug, but to get this kind of photo, that surely is. Really great, rare shot!

Coccinella septempuncata is my favourite insect. I love flowers and I know that it eats a lot other insect which eat these flowers.

Fantastic macro photoshot!

Thankyou David.

Very kind of you to visit my modest gallery and to comment.

"Modest"? Hardly. Your gallery comes right to my mind whenever I crave for some inspiration for wildlife shots. Best regards, David.
