Ladybug on zinnia leaf. I suppose the focus is more on the ladybug than the leaf, making the picture somewhat questionable for this forum. However, since I started the forum I've decided to interpret acceptable content as broadly as possible without becoming absurd. :)

I was trying for a shot of a flying wasp...these guys really zip around. Set the manual focus and spray and pray! The wasp is not quite in focus but the flower stayed still LOL!

Hi Al.
Very nice shot of the flower and wasp, the movement blur of the wings is good. But it's a wasp, shouldn't you have been spraying with bug spray and praying not to get stung? ;D (or maybe they are not as evil as the ones we get in southern England.)

Cheers, Graham.
