Lady Bug

I had to take a break from shooting due to allergies, but I'm getting back into it. The good news is that after almost 6 months of not shooting macro I still have the mucle memory necessary for hand holding the camera.

I couldn't get the impression of a cow grazing on grass out of my head when I saw this Lady Bug so I went looking for an angle and framing that would capture it.

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (@ 4x) with an 81A warming filter + a diffused MT-24EX.
