Great shot !!!

Behind The Lens

Location
Out on a rainy day.
Time
In the mornig around 10 AM
Lighting
Well, the was cloudy and I was looking for droplets to photograph.
Equipment
A Nikon D60 with a Sigma AF 180mm f/3.5 EX HSM APO macro and a tripod...
Inspiration
I like ladybugs, and I'm always looking for them. This particular day I was photographing water drops when I encountered this scene, and quickly began photographing ...
Editing
To get as much detail, I made two pictures, the first focusing on water droplet and the other on the ladybug and then joined the two in photoshop.
In my camera bag
One Nikon D60 body, a Vr 310 Olympus compact, a Nikon AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G, a Sigma AF 180mm f/3.5 EX HSM APO macro a tripod, a SB600 flash and a AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED for the normal shots ie: Landscapes, faces, etc.
Feedback
Get close and be pacient move slowly not to scare the animal, and use a support in order to get a good sharpness.
