Two pics from yesterday.

Ladybirds, which clearly feel that Spring has arrived.

Good shots to capture, I would suggest when shooting dark coloured things use +EV. If your using elements 10 and shot a jpeg, open it as a camera raw file which will enable you to use different EV setting.


Cheers

Thanks for that 4xxxx. I didn't know PSE 10 gave that option. I'll check it out. As it was, this was shot in raw and was an opportunity shot. Unfortunately I missed the pic of the worm being pulled out of the ground.

Not sure about PSE 10, I posted this a while back.

Very Spring-like that's for sure. I can't remember the last time I saw that many ladybirds in one spot. It looks like your weather up north is a lot warmer than what we've had in South Wales; very envious :wink:
