Ladybugs: Bug #29

Look familiar?
This is the same composition as the very first bug ACEO in the series:

I got a little ahead of myself.
I lost track of what day it was, and had planned to do this as my last bug. I wanted to show the evolution and changes I've made in the series. I thought for the last bug, this (re-doing the first one) would be significant.

Turns out it is only Saturday, not Sunday, and I am only on Bug 29!

I really wanted to add some more flowers to the composition, on the sides of the picture- but I also wanted to keep it as close to the original as possible. Instead of doing a blue and green background, I tried to imagine a fuzzed background as if this flower was a photo taken against a whole field of them. The flower was inspired by some that were growing locally last month when I started the series. For about a week along the Susquehanna, these were growing in mass quantities. They didn't last long though, but they were pretty while they were there.

I wish I had gotten a better picture of them growing along the little hillside here:

Wow, what a difference in the second picture. It looks so much clearer and bolder in the colors.

I love those yellow flowers in the photograph. They are truly lemon yellow. Do they smell nice?

Lady bugs are s symbol of good luck in Germany. Are they here too?
