But the thing I really love about the woodlouse it is how the lighting has made it into a really elegant sculptural thing whilst retaining the tough, 'tank-like' quality. Did you get it curled up too? amazing creatures.

That woodlouse is like a tank compared to the size of some sprintails. The woodlouse is maybe up to 16 mm long.

This shot is an uncropped 6mm across the frame at 3X magnification

This is a shot of a hydranea flower that is covered in springtails Entomobrya intermedia. They look like they are having a family party to me.

Alf,

The first one is a Sminthurides. The male antennal clasping organ can be made out for the one on bottom left and perhaps the central one. I don't think it is aquaticus. The lateral stripes should help to identify it.

I'm sorry to say that the Steve Hopkin website has been hacked by some jihadist testicle-brain.

I think the first is a tachinid fly

The second is the larva of the Cinnabar Moth

The third is a male Blue Hawker or Southern Hawker

I uploaded a Vapourer Moth a while ago. A film shot from the 80's.

Frans Id'd the first as Sminthurides malmgreni and he said the central one was male.
Frans has put an ID to most of my shots for me.

I couldn't verify it but malmgreni was my best bet.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Here's an unusual one, bird fleas in a nest box.



The morning after the young Blue Tits left the nest box I checked it to see if they had returned to roost in it overnight and this is what I saw.

I 'hop' to see some more imagin'itch'ive puns than mine, I'm just scratching about here...

I'd like to say nice picture but I need a good wash first.
