Flickr a Day 175: ‘The Ladybug’

This series doesn’t feature enough large-as-life closeups. So we remedy that misstep today. “The Ladybug”, says Steffen Ramsauer, “is from my garden”. What a gorgeous poser she is captured with the Canon EOS 550D and EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens on June 2, 2012. The Canon prime is excellent for close-up shots like this one and people portraits, too.

Steffen’s Macro work is irresistible. Detail is so fine that the red, or white against black, looks almost painted on. He generally shoots places or things rather than people, and the majority of his work is stock photography quality or better. From Stuttgart , Germany, he joined Flickr in October 2006.
