This tiny bug looked pretty spectacular as it worked its way up this stem, so I tried for a few shots with my macro lens. Even so, a fair amount of cropping was needed for this image.

These tiny insects were quite obvious when trying to photograph the special dragonflies and damselflies at this site. They made challenging subjects for the 180mm macro lens due to their size!

Returning from visit to a quiet Otmoor, I found two of these flies hovering in the middle of the path, so I couldn't resist trying some flights shots of a fly!
