......Awww go on, you know you want too!"

Nice early upload this morning as I'm off out down to the Somerset Levels with the cameras and won't be back till late this afternoon, but I'll be thinking of you all going "erghh! yuk! that's horrid!" while I'm down there. Tongue Just a little bit of fun while I'm gone, unfortunately he won't turn into a handsome prince if you do give him a peck, much worse than that......You might get me instead Smile

Happy Monday to all.....Catch you later....Ade

Camera:Canon EOS 50D
Lens:Canon MPE 65mm 1-5x macro @ approx X4 magnification
Recording media:RAW (digital)

Not long got in from the Levels, now have a whole load of processing to do......Zzzzzzz......Thanks for all the comments and to RWPhotoGraphix & Ugly's award, much appreciated guys!!

In answer to Geoff's query about chilling insects, I pot them and put them into the bottom of the fridge mate, give them about 10-15 minutes and they're as dopey as you like, you can even handle the real nasties with care. Don't put them in the freezer though, not unless you want then dead as they pretty well go straight into shock and die......Not really any good freezing them either as they lose all their life and damage occurs in the eyes.......

Ade
