This is a small aphid lion (lacewing larva) walking on a kitchen table.





I guess this qualifies as "nature photography", 'cuz I sure didn't put this critter here and I sure didn't have much control over it! Laughing

Technical: Canon A710. Image #1 is at ISO 80, f/5.6, and manual focus at closest distance, illuminated with built-in flash using materials-at-hand diffuser consisting of two note cards held at the front of the lens. (Subject is shaded from direct flash by the lens mount at this focus distance.) Image #2 is available light.

This certainly qualifies. Excellent (snap)shot Smile !

Have you ever been bitten by one? They can be fierce little critters.

Cheers

Crikey.... It looks to tiny and harmless in the second pic.

Very interesting little beastie.

Oh!

Maybe that explains the small sharp pain in my forearm, just before I brushed something away, looked down, and saw this critter on the table.

It never occurred to me that these things would tackle something as big as a human! Shocked
