Judging by the fluffy appearance of this fella, and his size, he must be a baby.
Have a wonderful Easter, everyone Smile

Three fine shots of this critter, each deserving of prime slot, but for me V 2 stands out as the insect is facing you and there's a good catch of light in both eyes: detail as ever fantastic.

Crikey, Carol, if that's a baby, then I'd hate to meet its Mum or Dad on a dark night...
it's a whopper, on my screen...!!! Wink
A seriously good set of images, the detail of which is fantastic.
He / She has some very interesting markings, too...
I wonder if all this species have exactly the same markings, or they differ slightly,
as they do with many animals. It's often the way to distinguish between each animal...
and that's how folk end up giving them individual names.
Another set of superb macros, Carol.

Simon
PS: Thought of you, yesterday, when taking a "macro" of a butterfly, nectaring, with 700mm lens...! Don't laugh...!!!
