Never seen one of them things in my life but you seem to have found some very nice things all at once! like 1 and 2 the best. You must have good eyes to spot all of these things, I barley notice anything apart from flys, flys and more of them.

Thanks Romero. The area where i was is very rich in insect life. Theres a huge variety of species present, I saw a lot more than I managed to photograph.
To spot the various insects is just a matter of getting your eye in and covering areas slowly so you dont miss as much. Once you get to know an area you instinctively know where to look on each visit.

Some how I missed this posting. Beautiful series and a wide varietyof macro shots. Great composition and sharpness. Number 1is my favorite because of the composition and sharpness of the focal point and scattered body parts.

Thanks for the comments.

Steve, I got to within 8 inches of the damselfly. It was a cold damp day so everything was roosting up and very approachable, the damselfly being no exception. On a normal day i`d have been lucky to get within 6ft of it.
