An early attempt at shooting macro. Caught this ladybug, well more like chased it, around some dandelions. I shot it with an Sony a580 and a reverse mounted lens as a macro lens. All manual focus, while trying to get this little ladybug to stop for just a second or two to get the shot.

I love the composition and the almost dreamy feeling.
It just seems the ladybug isn't super sharp, however, since it was in manual focus it's understandable.

Thank you. I was a bit off the mark with focus here. The dandelion was blowing in the breeze and honestly, my skill at that time was lacking a bit too. This was the sharpest photo I had out of the batch.
