Lady in Red – Iver, Buckinghamshire, UK – Jacky Parker
“Beauty is where you find it” – Madonna
This little red ladybug on a flower was found right outside Jacky’s front door in the United Kingdom. What a beautiful example of Macro photography. Not only is the red on red nice, but the black in the background really makes the black “pop” in the shell. From my experience if you are going to attempt Macro photography then purchase a 100mm rather than a 50mm macro lens. It allows you to get closer to you subject without spooking it.

The image was taken in my front garden in Iver, Buckinghamshire UK. I had set out to photograph a red oriental poppy growing in my front garden, I noticed the 7-spot Ladybird resting on by edge of the vibrant red petals and thought it would make an unusual image, red on red! with my Nikon D300 and Nikkor 105 micro VR set on Manual, aperture F/5.6, shutter 1/500 and ISO200 I proceeded to take a few shots, within seconds the little bug was off charging around the flower like a thing possessed!! All I could do was charge around after it trying to focus and take as many images as possible, to my delight after quite a few frames I found this image!
