Brilliant set of very sad images. Don't like seeing beautiful creatures coming to a sticky end, but that's nature for you. Survival of the fittest in a beautifully recorded set of images. Don.

A marvellous set of macros Isabel, you've witnessed and captured this struggle for life so superbly. It looks like this poor comma has come to a full stop and its last moments have been recorded for all to see on the web!

Yes, my 'hairy lady' had at least two lovely
butterflies this summer.
My sympathies are with the butterfly, but that's nature.
Well captured.
