I don't know how you find all these little creatures in your garden. I don't see them in my garden.
Should've gone to specsavers, I guess. :grin:

These are excellent shots, even if they are a bit "icky".
Thanks Roger, they're ickle not icky although I guess the former depends on your size and the later depends on your opinion.

Gotta look close, the biggest thing here is the velvet mite at around 4-5mm and the smallest is the springtail 2-2.5mm. I certainly had to go to specsavers.:D

Ok. I know how to quote, and I know how to multi-quote. But I don't know how to select part of a double quote, as above.
Errr, now I forgot what I was going to say. :oops:

Stunning macro as usual Ryan, glad you put the detail about the velvet mite, I was thinking wow they have big buggers down there. The ones on our window sill are miles smaller and never successfully got one yet.
