            Nice macros Alf, but I can't say I go a bundle on creepy crawlies..... That's a real weirdo on your bin!

              That thing on the bin is 1.5 mm of cuteness that is Springtail (Collembola) Dicyrtomina saundersi

              The bark fly is hardly pretty though but only about 3mm.

                You obviously really like creepy-crawlies, Alf! I like dragonflies and butterflies, but I don't go a bundle on a lot of creepy-crawlies.

                    These are all at about 1.9:1with my Sigma 10y and a raynox dcr 250.
                    I now have a set of tubes which I have added so I have upped the magnification. I have also moved the flash off camera but I need to sort the diffusion.
