Ladybirds on Lavender

Taken in my garden at the weekend. I had a go at a ladybird just after I bought my Nikon D5100 but only had the 18-55mm lens. It’s one of the photos in this post  here – “In love with my new camera” .

These are taken with my 40mm macro lens. Getting better I think but still a way to go yet 🙂

I couldn’t decide which photo to choose so decided to post them all.

Which one is your favourite?

  1. I vote for picture #2, probably because your subject is “facing” the camera. I love that the macro picks up the fuzzy antler look of the rosemary. “Ladybirds on Rosemary” sounds like the name of some drugged out girl band. 🙂

    • haha…very good Scilla ! I love the rosemary and the colours probably more than the ladybirds! I love the 2nd one too but as much because of the shape of the rosemary as anything else..

  2. The first one is really nicely focussed, but it is a pity that the bug is hiding its head. For that reason I too would go for number 2. Rosemary is doing well with this strange weather. Our’s is still in full flower.

    • Thanks David… one of my favourites is of the leg…which I was trying to focus on but didn’t quite get sharp enough.. I had no idea ladybirds had jointed legs like that or hooks on the end.. I have some Rosemary in flower too…crazy ! ( photo of that another day!)

  4. Ladybird nr 2 is definitely my first choice. Although it’s macro, you still see how tiny a ladybird actually is in it’s environment. I find this a very serene photograph.
