A lady bird gave me a salute so I felt I should post it, even though its not great.

That yellow background - stunning! The rest of them are good, too.

Cheers Steve. The yellow is a daffodil that the ladybird is on 👍👍👍

Your bugs are fast becoming the bench mark Derek. Keep 'em coming.

Quite simply Bugtastic

I envy your ability to pinpoint the important plane of focus, I'd like to think it takes you 50 shots for each one that you show, but I suspect it doesn't - Excellent once again

Cheers John, I probably take about 7 or 8 for every 1 that I'd be happy to use, maybe a little less, I end up with many very similar looking shots though so I don't post the ones that are too similar. 👍👍👍

And a small spider that's a gonner, but just doesn't know it yet. Parasitic wasp attached.
I'll be honest, and admit I couldn't see the parasite till I got home and had it on the PC, otherwise I would have tried to get a clear shot of that too

Ah, of course. The first rule of wildlife photography: Never show you failures

I'm going to a garden centre this morning for a few plants. Your daffodil background is making me wonder whether to choose them for the background they will give for bug macros. Never thought of that before!

The ladybird and earwig were on it of their own accord, I didnt put them on it, but that's given me an idea 🤔🤔👍

The 2 earwig shots are 2 shots apart just 1 dud in between 😁😁😁😁
