At times many photographers lose their photographic Mojo or inspiration, they lose heart and post plaintive please for ideas on Forums like this excellent one........I do my best not to let it happen to me.

We have a tiny (Victorian) back garden, every so often I put a Macro lens on to go hunting in the dark corners; to help in this I have laid severa short sections of log on top of the soil.

Leave them for a month or so and many creaturesmake their homes beneath, usually Woodlice, Centipedes, Millipedes, Spiders....look even closer (especially in winter) and you will discover tiny but cute looking Spring Tails plus many other tiny creatures.................these Slug Eggs were a bonus, something new to me:

An expensive Macro lens isn't essential, most DSLRs will and Bridge cameras can be fitted with the excellent RAYNOX 250 auxilliary macro lens (circa 50 from Amazon or eBay) ....also most compact cameras feature a good Macro setting:

Good HUnting!

It's a jungle out there, you just have to go and find it! The garden is where most of my photography is done these days due to disability. No idea what these are though.....Just read the description and I'm not sure as slug eggs are normally covered in jelly rather like frog spawn.
