1 Completely Free Stock Footage Clip for the Ladies

Very recently, my backyard became the "go to" place for ladybugs.  It turns out that it is where they decided to have their mating sessions, so the whole place was crawling with them.  On the day I noticed, it was also extremely windy, so the opportunities to capture some macro shots were limited, mostly because of the amazingly thin depth of field I had with my Sigma 180mm lens.  I DID manage to capture the clip I've included below.  I was able to follow it up this dying stalk of grass for a while, until the angle of my tilt, drew it out of focal range.  At that point I decided to let it leave the frame instead of racking the focus and possibly ruining the movement. It is amazing how intricate these creatures are.  I love making the macro world a little larger.

You are welcome to use this video in your projects you are working on, or keep it in your clip library for future work.The only thing you cannot do is turn around and offer it AS stock footage. Have fun with it!
