I almost did a cactus photo yesterday too! neighbors don't have a lot of plants, these are common.. anyway I really like cactus photos and the ladybugs are such a treat!
Guest 17-Mar-2005 11:53
cute!
Yvonne17-Mar-2005 11:11
Absolutely amazing photo!
Karen Stuebing17-Mar-2005 11:03
Fantasitic close up. Those little bugs really show up against the green.
Robin Reid17-Mar-2005 06:10
Beautifully done....creative eye. I like the angle of the light... excellent shadows give more depth.
Gary Hebert17-Mar-2005 04:37
Excellent macro work Herbert, very good details.
petesie17-Mar-2005 03:37
I have cactus, and I have ladybugs. I have never had them together and this is a fantastic photo. Voted, too.
katwilkens17-Mar-2005 03:36
Beautiful close-up! Nice light.
Karen Leaf17-Mar-2005 03:32
Just amazing. Not only 1 but multiple bugs. That's pretty close in Herb.
Guest 17-Mar-2005 03:09
wow..spectacular macro
Guest 17-Mar-2005 02:29
Good shot, as usual. Can't say anything that anyone else hasn't already.

The contrasts in this are really interesting. Great macro.
Susanne16-Mar-2005 23:56
You know seeing this macro makes you realize how those ladybucks must see those cactus thingies, dont know what they are called. Those poky thingies must appear huge to them, much how we see trees. great job.
René Gysi16-Mar-2005 23:46
Nice macro with great details.
Ian Clowes16-Mar-2005 23:18
Great mix!
Stu16-Mar-2005 23:02
Ladybirds and cactus!!!! What a combination!
markvm16-Mar-2005 22:53
Very nice, Herbert!
Gary Blanchette16-Mar-2005 22:48
Very cool close up!
Lee Kindness16-Mar-2005 22:30
Nice one Herb!
Sheena Woodhead16-Mar-2005 22:09
Ladybirds are the only insects I don't mind touching. I suppose it's 'cause they're so cute.
Mark Rutter16-Mar-2005 21:57
Great detail
laine8216-Mar-2005 21:49
Ladybirds, Ladybugs, Ladybeetles. To be treasured for sure. Love this Herb & it has my vote.
Chris(tine)16-Mar-2005 21:26
This is nice - why do we call them ladybirds and you call them ladybugs?? Chris
Lee Rudd16-Mar-2005 20:59
WOW indeed! Sharp image (sorry...).

Apparently British ladybirds (bugs) are dying off, if they had this challenge the may die off quicker! I find them fascinating I do admit.
Gary Winters16-Mar-2005 20:40
You do amazing closeups at the business end of a long telephoto. Who needs a macro lens anyway?
Zak16-Mar-2005 20:31
gasp, the poor ladybirds could get pricked! :-o
wow indeed though!
Gayle P. Clement16-Mar-2005 20:29
WOW, Herb!
