Aw, so cool.

Nabeel said...

wow, this is a beautiful shot. Did you use a macro lens to take this picture? If so which one?

Also, is the contrast natural or digital.

Janice Thomson said...

Excellent macro. I have one of a ladybug too but yours is really good!

bart said...

was this taken in the same field as the poppies recently?
love the detailed closeup :-))

Kostas said...

Really beautiful photograph with marvellous colours!

polona said...

masago: thank you :)

nabeel: actually, i only had my compact canon with me so this shot was taken with it. i don't have a macro lens yet, i'm afraid, but want to get one.
the photo is cropped and a little (but not much) contrast and sharpness is added.
thank you for your visit and comment :)

janice: thank you. this one wasn't easy to take as it was very windy that day...

bart: it was taken on the same day in the same area but the field was not the same :)
many thanks.

kostas: many thanks.

That's just brilliant, Polona.

polona said...

Stacey said...

Hi Polona,
Captured so beautifully... :-D

polona said...

i appreciate that, stacey. thank you

quilly said...

David is correct. It is brilliant -- and how did I miss it? Do you know he is featuring this on his website today as a "place to visit"? When I saw your name I got all excited and ran straight here. (I am so glad I didn't just burst in on someone else named Polona!)

Gorgeous photo. David was smart to choose this! Love it.

CrazyCath said...

Oh that is beautiful! This is the last of POTD I have visited and what a lovely way to end this journey around blogs. Really beautiful.

That is a fantastic picture. You inspire me. I hope one day to be able to capture shots like that.

Came over from David's place.

polona said...

This is so sweet.

I was looking for a ladybug yesterday for a specific shot I wanted to take, and do you think I could find one??

They are everywhere, until you want to take a picture of one. Must be camera shy.
