Ladybug [Ladybug Amphipods-Cyproideidae]
Yella Wal O Texas, Rinca, Horseshoe Bay, Komodo, Indonesia
Ladybug, sea flea, amphipod, itty bitty critter. Whatever you call it, it is small. They jump about with abandon. Water does not seem to slow it down. Sometimes there were dozens in one spot, allowing me to quickly focus on another when the one I was going to shoot disappeared! This particular ladybug is only found at a few dive sites in Indonesia.
Size: 3mm at their largest

This photo image is made by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. It has a glossy finish which produces colors that are very vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily with any commercial glass cleaner (avoid direct sunlight). It is then mounted on one inch thick aluminum frame. Comes with all the hardware to make it easy for you to put it right on your wall.
How archival are Metal Prints?
Images printed with the MetalPrints process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, MetalPrints should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures. MetalPrints have an additional benefit over giclee or photographic processes in that they are waterproof and have an ultra-hard scratch resistant coating. The archival value of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, MetalPrints are an excellent way to preserve an image.
