Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

I've been a bit distracted from posting recently but thought it may be fun to post a few random images from the garden, all shot with the EM-1 + 60mm macro with metz macro flash at 90 degrees, only the top tube lit

The first cricket I've spotted in our garden, a tiny little thing with enormous antenna

a little garden orb spider that has taken up guard on the approach to our tool shed, eating her damaged web (I have the series, up to the point where she started spinning again, something I've read about but never seen)

a tiny little orb spider making a meal of a common gnat (gives an idea of its size)

a flesh fly bubble blowing, having deposited another on the leaf behind it (not see this before although I have plenty of "bubbling" images

A fly species I can't ID, looks like a variant of a flesh fly

this ant shot is not good for detail but reminded me of my time in Sarawak (except there were a lot more, they were bigger and they bit like you wouldn't believe! )

and so on

(I'm still waiting on getting my cataracts fixed so all these were shot using my "50 shades of blur" technique )
