You could carve the Christmas turkey with these jaws


The ant is about 3/4 inch long and does indeed jump from leaf to leaf
C&C welcome.

Can't be that good at jumping if he has to crawl across a gap like that

Another nice shot Don.

Glad we don't have those guys down here.

How do you find the Pentax ring flash? I'm thinking of getting one.

Honestly I would stick with a good flash gun, a diffuser and some sort of flexible arm to aim the flash where needed, the ring flash is good but not as flexible in it's use as the gun.
C&C welcome.

Nasty critters always come across better. There is a distinct lack of them over here for some reason. A great shot Don. Lens/details?

Best regards
