Have a great 2010!

Ladybugs all dressed in red
Strolling through the flowerbed.
If I were tiny just like you
I'd creep among the flowers too!

Hi Horia,

You are a true master of macro photography. A simple ladybug, but captured so wonderfully. The ladybug is positioned perfectly in the photo and her polished shell reveals the textures nicley.

TFS and have a nice weekend,

Hi Horia,

A beautiful macro capture from ladybug with superb details! I like the blurry BG where the heart of the flower plays a great role, my friend!
Great contrasts and perfect natural colors in the picture.

A great dedication to a wonderful photographer, Mario!

Have a nice weekend!
best regards,

Hello Horia!
Bine focusat pe buburuza!
Buna si lumina si culorile!
Sper sa iti placa si cele 2 variante din WS ale mele.
Saluatri si numai bine!

Hi Horia - beautiful Ladybug composition! Excellent DOF and colors.

Hi Horia,
See you again my luck making your favorite insect. I hope seven dots.
Very good macro, and the flower is not really important. I told him a child, even poetry is now only remember the chorus:
Fly out, fly out Ladybug
Szállj el, szállj el Katica bogárka
Congrats, regards Sandor

Hi, Horia -
Great macro with superb sharpness and shallow DOF focusing on the ladybug; wonderful highlight on its shell. The strong light is well managed against the white leaves. The yellow center adds a bright touch of color. Nice work.

Beautiful macro shot.
Nice colors and details .
Beautifu gift, congratulation .

Wow, now this is a ladybug! she looks great against this white flower. Very good composition and poem!


Hello Horias,

Wonderful macro shot with that wonderful high-key exposure of the flower. The sharpness of the ladybug is outstanding and terrific against the blurred and somewhat over-exposed background. Excellent effort!

Hello Horia!
Such a lovely gift for our friend Mario. Really lovely Ladybug in a heaven of white flower. By seeing this one really wish to be tiny enough in order to creep within the petals. The bug is very sharply focused with great contrasts compared with flower, enhancing the beauty.

TFS, indeed a lovely and an attractive shot.
