I guess Ladybugs aren’t a summertime thing maybe? I didn’t see any until the weather started to cool a bit. It’s also totally possible I’ve just been avoiding ladybug hangouts by accident. Still, I’ve seen a lot more in the yard these past two weeks, so there could be something to my claim.
This took a few tries to nail, due to a combination of fast(ish) moving bug and not having my macro rig with me, but I eventually got it.
This was taken using me 90mm Macro lens, shooting at 1/100 with an f29 aperture, and ISO of 100. I was holding a flash with a Magbounce directly above the bug, which is reflected in its wing-shell. That is not the scientific term
