Beautifully framed and captured. Focus could be a little sharper IMO. (Not voting)

I think more of the ladybug being in focus would make this a 9! It looks so comfortable (:

Wonderful composition, but the white balance is off

Looks slightly under exposed, wish it was a bit sharper on the lady bugs face.

Nice close shot. Pales of the flower are appealing. Focus is a bit off on the antennae and head/eyes however.

lookin real good in the challenge ..
i'm not voting at all but i'm having a look thru .. there are some stand outs and some not so stand out . !!
this is the former .. great shot .. love the process ... good luck .. :)
lol lol LOL .. just noticed the title .. !!
also i noticed that you put those squiggly bits on either side of your titles .. they are distinctly yours .. so some ppl will know who the photographer is .. early on, i used to put three full stops on either side of the title .. didnt even think that it would single me out .. could go against you .. thats all .. :)
