I found a harlequin ladybird today, managed a reasonable shot, but when I was doing the editing I realised I had left my camera 1.5 stops under exposed from when I was doing some bracketing recently, so that made the PP a little more tiresome, but in the end, it came out OK. I also used a reflector to bounce some light in from the left hand side, as it was quite dark away from the natural light coming to her face.
