This little guy has been hopping from daisy to daisy - every time the daisy dies he just goes to the next one Smile My first attempt at a macro of a bug Smile
V2 the full picture
I cannot tell every one who commented on my health scare how much it means to me. EPZ is so much more than just showing photos - it has evolved into family Smile
WE have been lambasted by a strong warm berg wind since last night - a sure sign that a massive cold front is approaching Smile
Have a great day !!

Hi Herman, great to see you back. And great rookie macro of this tiny spider. Never seen a white one like that. And, I wonder if that guy is a girl, with eggs in that sac?

Two excellent captures of the tiny little crab spider, Herman. If you placed her on a different coloured flower, she would change colour to match the flower, isn't nature amazing Smile Carol

Superb capture Herman, we have them on our daisies as well. May do what Carol says and put him on a different coloured flower and see what happens. Yes there is a huge cold front approaching Cape town, after yesterdays beautiful 24 deg I think we are in for some nasty weather...no sun here todaySadSad

White balance in both is too cool Herman. Set your white balance to sunny, or shade, to match the conditions.


Ive uploaded mods of both, and you can see the different this makes.
