Hello. Excellent photograph. Believe it or not, i'm building a scale model of a ladybug, made by a company called Heller, and this photo really helps for reference. What is your name so I can add photo credit to the title when I save this? Thank you.

Thanks for this high quality photo of a Marienk?fer. The photo is in use by January, 1st 2006 on our website www.dslnachpankow.de . The site is dedicated to bringing broadband (such as DSL, WiMAX and other solutions) to the Berlin district Pankow, where most people still have to use 56K or ISDN due to fibre optic cables.

Happy new year!

This photo and others from here will be used to demonstrate a photo display module for eBay templates created by my husband. To see the photo module you can do a seller search for mysteryslair or demthings. If you dont see any auctions.. Please come back soon and take another look. Theres no telling what may be put up for auction! Thank you for such beautiful photos!

Thanks for such a great photo, I'd like to use on my web site.
