Orchesella villosa (Springtail)- Don't look into my eyes Mr Tog!!!


Recommended Posts

I was explaining to Polly what springtails were - the one I linked to was a globular springtail - but this one is an Orchesella villosa (Elongate Bodied Springtail)

 

I'm shy, stop it Mr Tog...

Brilliant set Paul ... I love the humour you’ve incorporated into it too ... makes for a narrative that really enhances the images ...

Thanks John.

You'll have seen them, without realising... Move a piece of wood or a piece of masonry from the soil in the garden and you'll spot some I'm sure. 4mm... Look hard - and they'll literally spring away sometimes!
