A small stacked image (12 images layered over each other for maximum detail) taken in the field of a mosquito getting it's comeuppance in a tiny sundew plant......Result!..If the little sods like to munch on you like they do with me Tongue

Hi to everyone that knows me, I'm doing ok, just waiting for the spring to finally arrive so I can get out there chasing the bugs and stuff.

A fantastic piece of macrowork showing this carnivorous plant devouring a mosquito, you've recorded the event so superbly. So you've emerged from hibernation in time for the spring?! I think you should retreat back to your lair it isn't here yet, it's still cold with snow flurries outside!Sad

A stunning composite or stacked image Ade, one which certainly allows the observed to fully appreciate the beauty and detail which this image has got to offer.

Nice seeing you back and uploading mate.

The sundew is a fascinating flower, as you show here, with its little sticky bits, and does a marvellous job.
I once sat and watched its activity, and was mesmerized.
