    Thank you for your observations ..... I suspect it might be a tiny Springtail.......or....an equally tiny spider..... can’t count all of its legs. I did discover the other species of Springtail, underneath a dead leaf yesterday, they are among the few insects/bugs that remain active under leaf litter all winter. They are fascinating little creatures.....please GOOGLE them, you won’t be disappointed. FUJI
  2. Hi Geoff, In my 80 s now I get far too many of these calls, some very convincing. My Best Buy to deal with it to date, is the purchase of a set of BT CORDLESS PHONES All having a large central button with a cross on. You listen, to establish caller and message, if there is any doubt, push the button and the call is ended and that number blocked from calling again. you do, of course need to ensure that a genuine caller isn’t blocked.... But no bank or other finance company will phone you.....I ask anyone I’m not sure about, to confirm by letter.....not giving my details..... I have reduced dodgy calls using these phones. FUJI
  3. Just MAGICAL..... I really miss my cats, so it’s wonderful that I can share your little monster. FUJI
  4. Thank you James......... I had to look-up .....Burgess Shales......fascinating, I see what you mean. FUJI

    Spot on Polly...... I was struggling to remember that it is a Fuchsia shrub ........ Thanks. FUJI
  6. I was more tan surprised when, on opening the full-size file on my desktop,monitor, the little creature appeared, so small that I hadn't noticed it whilst focusing to record those amazing textures. FUJI
  7. Seeking Macro subject at this time of year can be quite a challenge....for instance.... The Green Jelly-Like grub was completely hidden within two rolled up Bay leaves...cute isnt it? The Spider was also very small, I discovered him, covered by dead bramble leaves, he was a very fast mover so focusing was quite a challenge. FUJI
  8. The super-rich colour and the texture here surprised me greatly.....the deep central inside of a flower hanging with dozens of others from one of our shrubs. I'm no gardener and my good lady couldn't remember , so, if you know what the name of the shrub that bears suspended flowers that look like female dancers it would help ID. FUJI
  9. A fantastic and totally unexpected surprise .....thank you every one. FUJI
  10. Thank you all...... Motivation indeed! FUJI

    St on with your ID ..... I had also looked it up prior to posting and after seeing your reply.... A great catch, so late on. FUJI

    HOP IT !

    A lucky find today....A Grasshopper catching a watery sun on a south facing fence. I have never seen one of these locally before. FUJI
  13. Thank you all.... I remember posting lots of macro studies using an extremely heavy, ungainly lens and flash diffuser kit around ten years ago. That dedicated 100-2.8 macro lens cost me a small fortune, the results were never as good as these though. The fact that this very beautiful looking ex Cine-camera lens is only 2 inches long means I can work at f8 offering a much deeper DOF. The whole set-up is extremely light, even with all three extension rings added; currently I am experimenting with a tiny cube LED light, but struggle to focus as yet....more practice later today. FUJI
  14. Beautifully exposed and processed Polly.......lovely work. FUJI
