This is a ladybird that I found in my garden and I was lucky that it stayed still long enough so I could take a picture. I was very lucky that I had checked my ISO and depth of field before I took the photo. When I was younger my Granny inspired me to take up photography and told me to have a go at macro, so I did and loved it. Whenever I can, I try to read up on how to improve my macro photography. Learning about depth of field was very helpful and also how to use manual focus.
