Artist's Description

I found this Ladybird crawling precariously along this spikey stem. Luckily for me (though not so for him, perhaps) these spikes were covering the entire plant making his escape from my macro lens quite a challenge.

I’m fairly certain this species is the “Potato Ladybird” (Epilachna vigintioctopunctata) but I’m unsure as I haven’t spotted them before, so if you know your ladybirds I’d love to hear from you.

Shot near Linville, QLD Australia. Canon 7D, 100mm f/2.8 L lens and kenko extension tubes.

Shutter: 1/80th
Aperture: f/16
ISO: 400
