Ladybugs (Two Photographs)

You have to give credit to the ladybugs for being out in the cold in our early May. It warmed up a bit and I went out looking for insects. There were a very few, and fewer still that I could photograph. In these shots I added some minor glow in Photoshop (Gaussian blur and a soft light blending mode and faded the effect so that it was barely visible). This gave a slight density to the colors. Not a technique I will use often but it helped here. The split toning is natural and due to the unusual natural light.
