Ladybird on bluebell

By carbonbianchi      
This was one of the first photos taken with my newly acquired Canon 5D and I've been amazed by the image quality which beats my 7D.

It took me ages to find a ladybird to add to this bluebell. I searched under leaves, along twigs, in logs and on tree trunks. After half an hour of searching I went back to my camera and found one inches from my camera bag! I used the black material from my camera bag to get the black background to provide a real focus on the flower and ladybird.
