I captured this image shortly after I received a new lens for my birthday. Ladybugs are always a striking target, with their bright shells and the various markings on their backs and faces. While I would love to do this over with an extension tube, I was quite happy with how this one turned out.

Sadly, the butterfly bush that this ladybug is perched on did not do well this year, as evidenced by the state of the branch in view.
