Nice bug and nice shot, I was wondering how would it get if you cropped just a little so that the pink flower fullfilled all the frame??? Anyway, nice work. Cheers

Hi Tom, Nice shot again this time from the Larval off the ladybug. Question: How big is the larval. I shot two ladybugs having intercourse, so hard to keep them in focus. Please have a look at With F4 still you have an over all sharp image from the larval can you explain this. Would I get better result with the Zuiko 50mm 2.0 macro lens instead off the Zuiko 14-54mm.
