My resident shield bug, whom I see most mornings, came across a harvestman on his patch, but didn't seem at all bothered.

You are creating your own soap over there ? A few main characters and a hoard of extras. I was just wondering if Stephen Spielberg has your number, as the whole series has been so beautifully shot and produced. Wink

When we see this images it's easy to forget how small some of your photo subjects are!
This two images present so much to see! Good colours and good light. Your harvestman (minors one leg on the left) still looks quite a fierce warrior!
Hope your handsome shield bug survived the encounter! IB

The TZ7 is producing some spectacular work mainly the clear sharpness and the loss of grain in backgrounds plus your subjects are always very interesting.
