So much better than the previous image like this (the other one I critiqued - from what I can remember they seem quite similar!). Your focus here is lovely - the background colours are just that - colours. There are no shapes to take away the impact and attention from your main subject, and the actual colours of the background are a perfect contrast to the brilliant pale of the flowers, and the passionate red of the ladybird. The background alone is quite a beautiful splash of perfectly matching shades.
The focus is absolutely spot on - your subject is so clear and instantly recognisable. Your slightly lower angle reflects your title perfectly, as well as the fact that the ladybird itself is clearly so small compared to the flower is has just scaled. As for the flower itself, again, your focus is perfect. Even though the front of the flower is in focus, there is no doubt your subject is still ultimately the ladybird, and the the blur of the flowers towards the top of the plant does make it seem like your subject still has a little way to go. Your colours here - as previously mentioned - are so much better than your other image as well. The red and black of the ladybird is so brilliant, with the angle of your lighting casting a brilliant shade so as to see the full range of colours the ladybird gives off in the light. Again, it's a stunning - and perfect - contrast to the background.
Overall I can see you have taken previous criticism on board and really worked at this picture - and my gosh, it has paid off. Just one tiny thing - Maybe next time shooting a similar thing, angle the camera a bit lower so that the title of this piece reflects the nature of the image a little more, for from this angle it seems as though the ladybird doesn't actually have far to go at all, and this could be enhanced by a lower angle.
But as I said, and as I'm sure many other people will agree - this is a beautiful shot, and certainly, I believe, one of your best!
I had a very difficult time choosing between this one and this one: [link] , but this was closely following my first choice. I love the clarity and the story it seems to tell. Not all photographs can tell a story. The focus, background, colors and placement of your subject matter are perfect for the title you gave it, which encouraged my imagination of the 'story' it was telling and where it might go from here
