Ladybug (Two Photographs)

It is no surprise that I enjoy close-up/macro photography of insects. I have written a few articles on this blog that go into the techniques. In this photo there is an added bonus of some butterfly eggs on the bottom right side, more in focus in one shot than the other. I have had to fix some specular highlights created by my flash. Ladybugs are beetles, not bugs, and as such have wings. While I have seen ladybugs fly, more often they just run, and they can move very fast. The truth is no matter how many times I go out to take photos of insects it is an adventure if not a hunt. Expect to see more, and I will refrain from the gruesome.
