Winter macros

Enjoying shooting in this "winter", happy to be finding arthropods in decent numbers.
Living in the tropics does have it's own set of perks :D

Thank you, Mark!



The story behind the blue BG on the jumper is interesting. We were walking beside a series of fence posts when I was hoping I could find something that would sit still for me to practice on..Lo and behold! I find this tiny jumper sitting on the blue fence post, pretty much at eye level and a solid surface to rest my left arm on to stabilize myself :D

I agree with Mark. Beautiful images. The male close-up id's intense.
I'm in Canada! Isn't that weird?
