Little Ladybug on a Leaf  

Last summer I was walking to the car, camera in hand, when this little guy landed on my shirt. So I set him on a leaf and he let me snap a few photos. And I don’t think I have ever seen a ladybug with so many spots on his wing covers. Is it true that the number of spots on a ladybug’s back correlates with their age? Or is that just an elementary school myth?

  1. Oh, I so adore ladybugs – this photograph is stunning! :)

  2. Great photo! I love the bookah.

    What lens did you use? And if I can ask, what was your aperture and shutter speed?

  3. Thank you both very much!

    I was using m 55-200mm lens because it all happened so fast but if I would have had the time I would have liked to switch to my 60mm micro.

    Below is some Exif data for the photo…

    * Focal Length: 200mm
    * Aperture: f/5.6
    * ISO: 500
    * Shutter Speed: 1/500 second
