An appalling day yesterday, with torrential rain and gale force winds, and the same forecast for today So back to the archives yet again, here are a couple of shield bugs playing king of the castle atop a seedhead.
Your ability to get superb bokeh from your Ollie is just amazing. Only you and the fairies at the bottom of your garden know how...... Stunning shots.
Barry is correct, I suspect some form of magic is at work here........
Mind you, whatever it is you are doing, keep on doing it, brilliant as always Carol. Hope the weather picks up soon.
V2 for me today...
Top images again...
Oh they are both sooo cute. wonderful detail Carol - I think you need both to see what happened next!
V 2 is a cracker.
Fantastic macro shot images Carol, well done.......
Love the pink legs.
You do very well with the Olly - two very good macros

Well done you and the fairies.
Two Fantastic and great macro shot,Carol,very well done,
Love the colours, V2 for me Carol great macro - Carole
I am amazed at where the antennae seem to be coming from
I learn so much from your wonderful images ...
two fine shots carol, and i like v2 with the small bug in a better position.
Big bug seems to be giving you 'the eye' in v1. Nicely done and v1 shaves it just for me as there is no overlap between the two combatants.
Super images, V2 for me
V2 for me Carol, excellent clarity and colour.
Pleased to be number thirty Carol
Quite a good morning here today - about +2 C, with no breeze - pleasant enough, if you are on the move
A couple of top class shots Carol.
Sorry to hear the weather there is so miserable, Carol: very foggy here yesterday, today hard frost.
Two fine images of the shield bugs, both excellent but with V 2 just edging ahead for me.
Here snow still on ground but hopefully not for long...sun is out
sending it over later today
2 great shots again Carol..V1 for me...getting together seems good title here?
V2 for me as well today Carol. A lovely little interchange.
Fantastic detail Carol.
Amazing detail once again in these fine images Carol!
V2 just edges ahead Carol lucky you have such quality in your archives ...winter blue skies frosty here may venture out
I feel that V2 has the edge. Love the pink legged one! IB
Brilliant details Carol..Lin
Love both but V2 is getting my vote. Glorious sunshine yet again after a bitterly cold and frosty start.
Two great images Carol, keep searching those archives because you're finding some superb images.............Sandy
Two brilliant images Carol, hard to choose between them but I think V2 has the edge.
I love the title Carol! Both excellent images!
2 superb images Carol, sooo sharp.
Two brilliant close-ups, Carol - I'm intrigued though, that they seem to be the same species, yet one has got red legs and the other hasn't! Think V2's my fave
Two super captures.
Excellent detail and lovely soft, toning
Difficult to get enough depth of field on these two Carol.If only they would behave!.
Thanks for your comments and interest.If you have time I have included A few new variations on my ammonites.
I bought the original fossils in Aberistwith market specifically for my ceramic project.The originals I understand hail from Madagascar.
Best wishes Robert.
maybe the one without red legs is the younger of the two as in KF's where this applies - two good shots
Top class photography.
Hi Carol Great shots , weather can only get better gray
Great work Carol, spring still feels a long time at the moment.
The labour of climbing up
Excellent, two for the price of one. Great couple of macro shots.
You have a lot of good stuff in your archives Carol. A wonderful game of hide and seek going on here.
More fun and games from the insect world on Crete, it's just like pantomime season! lol
