Damn paparazzi

All the insects are coming out of hiding now that it has stopped raining and the sun is shining a bit. So its the perfect time for me to practice my none existing macro skills. The biggest problem I keep running into is unsharp pictures due wind or a way to big aperture.

 

Anyway this ladybug was hiding behind the leaves and even though I'm probably going to get grief for having the leaf partially blocking it I really like this picture.

 

Equipment:

Canon 5DII | 100L | 430EX diffused on camera in ETTLII mode | Handheld

 

Available light was changing every second so I put the flash in ETTLII mode.
