These are the assorted macros of the other insects taken today.

FZ10+ Raynox 250, ISO50, F8, mostly 1/60s, 2 diffuse flash, handheld


#1: Derbid Bug (not so sharp)...
Taken upside down. This bug was underneath the railing


#2: Some hopper
This was the fella I was taking when the Huntsman (in my "Other Spiders" ) jumped out of the blue onto the railing!


#3: Suckling Piglets
This looks like a mother pic feeding their young ha ha! But its not.....these False Scorpions are feasting on the dead flying ant!


#4: Another closer view


#5: Ant chewing off the molted shell of a spider


#6: Releative sizes


#7: Some Fly

What a day you`ve had Tan, bet you`re well pleased with all the great shots you`ve managed today. 3 and 4 in particular are very interesting and well taken shots.Out of curiosity, how many shots do you think you took altogether today to get so many good ones?

Thanks Mark! Yes, enjoyed myself today.....by myself, all alone and no time pressure!

Shot over a 3 hr period, inclusive of walking and looking for bugs. Took about >400 over pics to get these.

Well you certainly put the time to good use. Thats the beauty of digital, you can shoot as many pics as you like at no extra cost.The end result is what counts, and the number of binned shots is no loss at all.
