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....

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