Captured this weevil the other day taking a bit of a sit down and rest as he was climbing up this plant stem. Tongue One shot image using the MP-E lens @ F16

New computer is all up and running with no problems so far, touch wood! The real drag is going to be having to sort out the old machine so as to pass it onto my Grand-Daughter so she can do her photography. Speaking of which, that's where I'll be today, out and about with Ellie down on the levels probably with her camera! Brilliant fun Grin

Catch you all later folks.......Ade

A brilliant capture - these weevil are really tiny (hard to spot in the first place!).

(I shall look forward to seeing Ellie's results! Smile)

The detail throughout is so good I thought this must be a stacked image, but no: that lens in your capable hands is an undoubted winner, Ade. Fabulous macro work.
