Interesting image Carla, interesting subject. Did you train these ladybugs yourself? LOL #1317676

Carla Capra 10/15/2010 7:21:12 AM

You are too funny, Arthur! ;~)
If I could... I'd have them turned, smiling at me and waving, lol.
Thanks, I appreciate your comment!

That is some tribe of Ladybugs you have there Carla! This is a remarkable macro capture, and obviously a one off chance! Well done! #8977282

Carla Capra 10/17/2010 3:29:36 PM

:~) I was so surprised that I figured there'd be too much camera shake to even tell the lady's from the fruit. They quickly scurried away to hide.
I was thrilled by this capture. Thanks John!!

Nice eye to spot the Lady Bug on the fruit and get the capture to boot. Nice finalist Carol #9131022

Carla Capra 12/30/2010 2:52:33 PM

Hi Emile;
If the outer skin hadn't fallen exactly when I approached, I would have missed it. These little ladies were quick to hide. Thank you.

My attention was drawn to this pomegranate when a section of its outer skin fell to the ground under the tree. I was lucky to get this one shot off, before the lady's scurried into hiding in the fruits crevices.
