I love the ladybird, beautifully caught. The frame isn't for me, just personal opinion and probably just me! Smile

Agree about the frame. Doing City and Guilds of London photography level 1 (first year) so frame is for presentation and just to show that I know how to do it in Photoshop. He was running round the rim of an old plastic pill bottle where he lives. He was like a toy train on a track. The camera was handheld and flash was used to freeze the motion. F36 was required to get the depth of field so aperture was just about open and exposure time would have been too long. At the speed he was moving he would not have been recorded without the flash.

I feed him on honey and water. When the sun comes out and the wind dies down I will take him to the garden where I hope to get a few shots before he flies off. The time stamp should read May not April, I had pressed the two buttons to put camera back to the default settings and must have set the wrong month.

Have practiced focusing by eye only by focusing the camera then half pressing the shutter release to check if I got it right. In this sort of situation there isn't time to use the focus indicator and then look to take the picture. Focusing was done by moving slightly back or forward with the focus ring fixed at its best position to fill the frame.
