Leaf Hopper Nymph

By zanzibarwinds
Best viewed large

Shot at about 3x Mag. Little leaf hopper Nymph (I think) with an odd tail which they lose in adult hood.

Sitting on a marigold petal.

Been away from EpZ far too long, with spring arriving I will hope to be posting some more photos here and going through other members photos as well and catching up.

I supose you've been asked this many times before, but I'll ask you once again:-
"What equipment do you use to get such consistently fantastic closeup shots?

Before I reached your comment down here, I thought you have used some kind of extension tube?
