  3. Oh Melanie you’re braver than I am. I don’t like getting to close to these little critters. Wonderful macros.

    • Thanks, Edith. I just love these little ones. I find them so interesting and beautiful.

  4. As a non photographer, I am amazed just how up close and personal people can get with their cameras in creating images of the smallest of creatures. What is more amazing is that the little beasts are constantly on the move so it is all that more difficult to capture them at their best.

    • Thank you very much for your kind words. One of the things I enjoy most about photography is, indeed, getting right up on my subjects, and usually, they are the very small ones that interest me most! I enjoy the challenge of capturing their images very much. Thank you for visiting!

  8. Do you really not have a macro lens? These are beautiful.

    • I really don’t! It’s the fantastic Leica lens on my Panasonic Lumix LX5, and the macro setting. It’s a great little camera.

      Thanks so much for the nice compliment.

  11. I love the first few that look dark and gritty, just like the little buggers that you captured :). Those are my favorite.
