Lady Beetle On A Geisha Girl by 

“Lady Beetle On A Geisha Girl”

A few days ago I searched through my garden for any interesting and photogenic flowers or insects to photograph. There were quite a few butterflies visiting sporadically as my search continued and while I was looking, I found a few Lady Beetles crawling around on a bush called a Geisha Girl.

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    This is beautiful.

  • Thanks Donna, it was a great little scene! I wanted to get a much closer shot but these Beetles never stop moving and that proved difficult as it went behind branches and leaves.

    Interesting work………………

  • Thanks very much! The coolest insect that frequently visits that bush is an Australian Native Blue-Banded Bee but it’s very hard to photograph because it flies around erratically like a Madman! Hopefully I’ll get a nice photograph of one soon.

    Beautiful capture & sharpness my friend ! Doing great !

  • Thank you Tom! Hopefully I’ll get a shot soon with bigger “in-frame scale” when I try again – it was Hot and irritating shooting on that day.

    beautiful work!

  • Thank you! I know where they like to hang out now, so I’ll be re-shooting them to get much closer in the macro realm. :)
