This is a lady bug (duh, right) taken by Leon Baas. Now I’ve seen some stunning macro photos before but Leon has some of the best I have ever seen. I can’t get over how colourful and whimsical his work is. Take this picture for instance, it may be obvious it’s a ladybug, but the whole thing just gives it a magical, otherworldly feeling. There’s a sense that this could be something out of a fantasy story, or even sci-fi. I just can’t get over the pull this one has for me.
What do you think of it?
