Very special thanks To Jenn and Ann for the user awards on the little rust snail. And to all those who had some splendid ideas about rust and mushrooms Smile Enjoyed every one of them.

Well the Tamron 90 2.5 MF does only 1:2 so this is a substantial crop at the closest distance.
But I need the experts like Carol, Ade or Tomcat to tell me what it is exactly, didn't find it in my book!

Having no expertise in macro work, I shall return later to see what advice is given, and hope to learn too.
All I would say meantime is that this strikes me as being a pretty good macro shot, Annette, and one I'd have been happy with were it mine.

Looks very similar at first glance to a Ground Bug possibly Nysius ericae, but don't quote me on that! Me books upstairs and the only reason I going up there tonight is to go to bed Wink

Annette, not only is this a technically wonderful macro, it is very nicely composed and your framing is perfect for this one.

Lovely detail Annette. Not a clue what it is. My thoughts were that it was some kind of shield bug but this one you have captured seems to have clear wings, something i have not seen in shield bugs.
