[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Just this morning, on Mother's Day, I found this couple of ladybirds - an 'unequal' pair?!
No!
Both specimens belong to the same species
- Harmonia axyridis
- family: Coccinellidae
which is rather variable in respect to colour pattern.
Here we see a black red-dotted female and a tyically coloured red male with black dots.

In 2006 I posted several pictures of H. axyridis. Here, more informations of the originally Asian Species can be found, including a nearly complete life-cycle.

- natural light
- ISO 400
- hand-held

Bonne journée.

Hallo Peter,
sehr schönes Makro dieser beiden Mirgranten. Sehr gut ins Bild gestellt, tadellose Schärfe und eine hervorragende Tiefenschärfe. - Ich bin von meinen Marienkäfermakros immer enttäuscht weil die Tiefenschärfe so gering ist. Farblich und lichtmäßig sehr gut abgestimmt. Danke für dieses sehr schöne Muttertagsfoto.
Gruß
Heinz

WOW!! Amazing!
I would have never thought they were the same species!
What a beautiful pattern that of the female, perhaps for being so unusual (to me).
A great astonishing macro, Peter!
Just a masterpiece in nature photography.
Congratulations and TFS
Greetings

Hey hey hey - hallo Peter, wo hast Du denn heute Morgen schon hingeschaut?!?
Ein schönes Paar - man kann fast nicht glauben dass sie aus der gleichen Familie stammen - welche Zeichnung haben denn dann die Nachkommen?!? Ich hatte heute auch Glück, hab' eine Plattbauchlibelle gesehen ;-)
Viele liebe Grüße

Hello Peter,
Excellent macro showing how this invader from Asia can vary in colour and markings. This shot of a pair of H. axyridis in cop. has good DOF, excellent sharpness and contrasting neutral BG set in a fine composition.
A top class macro and a fine contribution to TN!
Thanks for sharing this one,
Best wishes, Ivan

Hi Peter,

Great picture of these two beetles.
Great color, lighting and background

hello
excellent macro, good POV, nice colours, great details, good DOF, well done

This is a great image, Peter. It not only presents the mating couple in their best of colours but also elucidates the marked difference between the male and the female of the same species. One would have taken it for an "unequal pair", but for your usual erudite note.
Thanks and best regards.

Hi Peter,
Simply fantastic!!! Detail is incredible, colours are brilliant and that sheen on the insects is beyond comment. There may never be a perfect shot, but I believe this one comes really close to being that.

Hallo Peter,
Die genau gleichen zwei habe ich vor kurzem fotografiert, aber Dein Bild ist viel besser als meines.Interessant zu wissen, dass sie zur selben Art gehören, so verschieden sie auch aussehen. Schön fotografiert.
Liebe Grüsse

Hallo Peter,
ein super scharfes Bild in jedem Sinne ;-).
Ganz toll hast du es aufgenommen, herrlich die exposure, und die Farben kommen einwandfrei durch.
Der Bildaufbau ist prima und die Farben passen so herrlich zusammen.
Ich glaub du hast die vor dem Fototermin noch vorher frisch poliert.
Gruss..Sky

Hallo Peter,
Diese beiden jungen Schönen treiben's toll.
Marienkäferliebe vom Feinsten.
Die so überraschend unterschiedlichen Färbungen scheinen ihre Leidenschaft noch anzuheizen. Gegensätze ziehen einander an.
Gespannt dürfen wir sein auf die Zeichnungen des Nachwuchses.
Detailwiedergabe, Farben, Licht und Bildaufbau exzellent.
Die Schärfe auf Kopf und Kragen genau an den richtigen Stellen, während intimere Teile in sanfter Weichzeichnung diskret verborgen bleiben.
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,
Peter

Dear Peter,
Wonderful! With this picture you give an impressive demonstration of your mastery in the art of Macro. My congratulations. The subject was difficult, with much contrast, shiny surfaces, smallness. Thanks also for the good note, I can really learn from your post and that is after all what TN is for.
My best regards,
Dietrich

Hello Peter,
I didn't realize that these two were dressed differently!! Interesting and an excellent shot! All in focus showing great sharpness and natural colours. They remind me of two slightly bigger animals, tortoises, we saw in Turkey in the same position! :-)
Thanks for seeing and for the note, Ulla

Hello Peter,
firstly thankyou for your critique on my photo of this species.
I took up your invitation and had a look in your gallery where I came across this gem!
+++ The DOF is top-class and keeps the whole of both the ladybirds in perfect focus keeping them sharp and crisp.
Great composition aswell.
--- Nothing :)
Fine work my friend.
Well done,
Joe

This subject is not easy to shoot with a direct flash (reflective body) and yet... you managed to captured them in perfect exposure. Well lighted and the colors are superb!
