Ladybug IV

A trip for more than five hours of roaming around in the different parks of Copenhagen gave me a lot of shots of ladybugs. They seem to be everywhere at the moment! The best of them are in this little series, I hope you will enjoy them!

This photo is my favorite of the series - I really like the feel of those pretty small leaves, and the feeling that the ladybug is either sleeping or hiding from me. The colors, green, slight purple and red, also fit very well together :)

As always, please tell me what you think of this :) Further, I would really like to hear which of the photos in the series you like the most :)

Cool! :D I love ladybugs. I always did, starting from when I was but a small boy. They seemed to have something mythic about them, they'd just walk over your hand, and flew away when it felt like they had let me seen all beauty that was theirs. A perfect shot. Thanks for sharing! :)

Very nice. I like the bokeh on this :)
The background seems a bit noisy, though, have you tried reducing that with software?
