I guess your tasteful start did not inspire, did it?
I like the colors though.

Here is a quick snap of a tiny spider (3mm), with 50 macro and cropping.

No - I guess not. For a moment there I thought I had killed the thread! Glad you came in with a much better, tasteful shot.

A couple of waterlice from my pond - they are about 1cm long, with longer legs at the back than the front. I guess this helps them burrow in the mud at the bottom of the pond.

Bass, I think yours may be a harelquin ladybird, in which case you may want to report your sighting here: http://www.harlequin-survey.org/

Top quality, Richard

This and similar threads have stimulate my interest in macro photography, it would be useful if posters gave details of the setup they used.

Glad you liked it Alan .

My set up was rather crude in arrangement, if thats of any encouragement! Sony A100, ISO200. 100/2.8 focused at 1:1, f/11. 3600HSD used wirelessly. The lens and flash were balanced in my left hand.

It can be rather tricky to the focus, especially as it was an overcast day when that was taken, so its great to see it come out reasonably sharp.

Hope that helps.

"Pride Leaf" would have been a better title too!
