Thanks, Mark. No, I don't know what they are. But I saw theseand more muchsmaller insects andants gathering towards the new shoots in this creeper. The high contrast is due to direct sunlight on the leaves. I think I am stretching my FZ3 macro to its limits without an additional lens.

I sometimes find strong sunlight a hindrance for shots like these....

I`m guessing but the small fat bodied bugs are probably a species of Aphid....although it is only a guess.
The Raynox macro lenses aren`t too expensive and are a very worthwhile investment if you intend doing a lot of macro shots...well worth considering....

As always, just stunning and beautiful!!!!

The small bugs are indeed aphids, also known as ladybird beetle food.

Nicely done Raghu, especially with out an additional lens.

Raghu, very nice set of photos...on #1 it almost looks like mom & babies.

I love the composition of the first one. Nice capture and even got some sticky aphids in it. :o)

Beautiful shots! The color and the zig-zag black marks make me think of Charlie Brown.

I think I'll add a ladybird eating aphids to the list of shots I want to get someday.
