How well the red stands out against the vibrant green leaves: like the natural setting here, Jenn.

Jenn, the color rocks! I love that you filled the whole screen with green to set off the lady bug. Nice use of DOF and a perfect placement of the lady bird (for the Brits) in your comp.
I really like this image.

Even without the ladybird this image would stand out, she is just the icing on a lovely cake. - gary

The green does emphasise the little bug. Very well done.

That particular shade of green is perfect to highlight the little critter, Jennn. I was going to suggest losing a bit off the rhs, but having looked again (using both eyes this time)Wink then I have changed my mind on that point.

A fabulous image of this harlequin ladybird, they are an invasive species over here and are not welcome at all.
