Hello! First of all, I let you know that this critique will enter the #FeedbackFrenzy's comment contest :)
I really like this picture, it's an awesome macro of a ladybug, one of my favourite insects :aww: I like the colours, they're so vibrant, and the use of complementary colours is always interesting and pleasant to see. Also, the blurry background make the subject stand out more and the eye is immediately captured by the insect. The lights are perfect too, they look natural and There are many clear details in the photograph, such as the texture of the blade of grass and part of the ladybug itself. I think you could have used a bigger aperture, so the whole insect would be on focus, but I like it this way too. The perspective is nice, too, I like the angle you used.
The only thing I'm not very fond of is the composition. The ladybug isn't perfectly centered, it's a bit on the right; however, maybe the rule of thirds would have worked better with this picture, giving an even better impact. I suggest you to try it, I think photographs like this look better by using it. :)
Your photo has given me a very good impression, you made a great job and the result is almost perfect :clap: Keep it up, you have great pictures in your gallery! :happybounce:

I like this picture and the ambient and the ladybug, the pallete of the colours, the way you made them look is great, they are so balanced and wisely used. Because of that the Ladybug is always the foucs of the pic and with the little blurry connects with the background making it look like a hole.
But after looking it for a while, maybe is a little bit too blurry (The background) I susggest a little less.
The angle of the pic is good, helps to the composition.
I have to say that the right part of the ladybug with the blurry is not eye-friendly, is good, dont get me wrong but I sort of prefer it without it because is too much blur.

However is a good pic, keept doing it this good. Hope this help even a little bit.

Okay so this is the last of my critiques for you for the Feedback Frenzy so hope you enjoy ^-^

First off all CONGRATULATIONS on managing to take this photograph before the bugger moved!! The one time I actually found a lady bug when I had my camera at hand it wouldn't stop to let me take a damn photo :P
There's not much at all that I can fault with this photograph.
The way the large aperture has created such beautiful, almost painting looking, grass strands is gorgeous and even more so then that it also really instantly pulls our eyes in to the ladybug and makes the texture that IS visible on the grass stand out even more.
Also, I love the way the grass strand is diagonal rather then vertical or etc because it really gives us a sense of movement as well as making me want to hold a little rescue trampoline underneath the poor fellow.
The contrast and vibrancy of this photograph is pretty much spot on and the colour scheme of the lovely soft greens with violent reds and blacks is lovely.
I wish the ladybug were either centred or slightly more to the right and so incorporating the rule of thirds though and I'm slightly disappointed that not ALL of the ladybug is perfectly focused so maybe a slightly larger F.stop next time would work better ^-^
All considered though this is a gorgeous shot and you've definitely got a favourite out of it :D
