The Story:  Ladybugs are one of my favorite super macro subjects. They are tiny, beautiful, and sensitive. Mostly ladybugs are living in sea fans or softcoral. So in this shot, I did my best to try to show the relationship between the ladybug and its surroundings.  Luckly, when I shot this image, the dive site has a weak current, and the soft coral opened their tentacles which made the photo more interesting.
