The ladybug and the droplet

View On Black

 

This ladybug was on a leaf next a water drop after the rain.

Just sitting there without moving. It had also one dropplet on its carapace.

 

I took 2 photos, hands held, with 2 different focus that I merged afterward to get the drop and the bug mainly in focus. I could not have enough DOF in one exposure because I had to have enough shutter speed for hands held photos. So I was wide open. This set-up gives also a smoother aspect to the background.

 

The saturation and vigneting have been adapted.
