Ladybug on white flower

By Saastad
Yesterday, when i was walking around in my home area with the camera, I found a little ladybug that i thougt i should take some pictures of. The problem was that it was blowing so much, so it was so difficult to get a decent shot. Either it was it blowing, or she was moving. It end up as a patience test.This went out to be the best result.Hope you like it.
Thanks so much for all votes, comments and awards on my last photo, much appreciated.

Wish you all a happy day!

Nicely done Arne, even at f11 close up and movement don't go well together, curiously enough just spotted a spider in my shed, and even under controlled conditions patience is a virtue and a new set of knee pads would certainly help..Lol..WinkWinkWinkWink

Thanks a lot Mal. But i also had a blitz in my hand. And i used a home made white plactic cup around the lens to get soft light from the blitz. And idea from the net. Then i just hold the blitz close to the plastic cup.

Well done Arne I did a similar thing last year while I was off sick it was a ladybird on a strawberry plant I couldn’t get down low so I took the potted plant it sat on inside my shed I used my crutch to steady the camera it was all but impossible to keep it in focus the little critter was racing around the leaf like a racehorse
at macro the speed seemed much faster than watching it from my normal prospective you have done exceedingly well to capture it hand held I will upload my shot shortly
again we’ll done.

Thank you very much for the fine comment Terry. And for the idea too. In this shot i used a hand held blitz, it helped me to freez the movement. Looking forward to se your photo also Terry.
