Happy New Year everyone!
Had an opportunity to shoot again today. Daughter was asleep in the car, and inorder not to wake her up, I let her sleep with my wife taking care of her. So had close to an hour to shoot below my house. Saw several jumping spiders, but had my reverse lens on, so not able to get a good shot. Anyway, managed to shoot a funny Y-looking insect (any ID appreciated), a small mantis, and a Lynx and Heavy Jumper (sorry to bore you again with the heavy jumper). This fella was quite a mature one.

FZ10+6T+Sigma CU, Ext bounce flash, ISO50, F8.0 various speeds

#1: I can see you!
1/200s
This fella was searching for food, and I did not want to disturb it, as past exp told me that if I disturb it, it will go into the foilage to hide. It jumped onto this leaf, and while searching for an angle to shoot, saw this opening in the leaves to shoot. Thought it was an interesting framing....and only had 2 shots when it was there. This was the better one.

#2: Side view
1/200s
This fella was quite large....larger than any normal jumper I see.


#3: Lynx
1/160s
Saw this large lynx too, but this time, on the leave rather than on the flower as in my previous post.



#4: Mantis
1/250s
Saw this very small mantis below the leave.


#5: Backlit Mantis
1/125s
When to the opposite side and it was backlit


Saw this very funny Y looking insect. First time I have seen it. Any ID is appreciated!
#6: Y looking insect
1/100s


#7: Close up
1/100s


#8: Thick and dark antenna
1/100s

tchuanye, your macro shots continue to amaze. You are my inspiration to inspire to greater heights in 2006 as far as macro photography is concerned.

Very good shots, tchuanye!
The funny Y-looking insect is a bug larva. We have a species in europe, Coreus marginatus, which has a quite similar form as larva.
