Brilliantly caught, the details are fantastic - I'm surprised they are about in snow!

Thanks Karen, yes they are still about if you look under most leafs, have found them frozen to leafs before, when they defrost in the sun they have a quick wash and walk off, amazing little guys Smile

Phil.......I've said it before.....you are a brilliant macro photographer........I too am amazed to see one of these in the snow........how the dickens do they keep warm with no hair or fur......or is it fat that keeps them going?

This is so beautiful and so funny. It's the angles of the antennae and legs... The wide aperture works perfectly, isolating this little character in a white, icy world. One of the most engaging macro shots I've seen for ages.

Thank you Hobbo, they are amazing little bugs, can be frozen in ice, and then defrost and be ok! Smile

Thanks Moira, The spring tail is only 2mm long, so very tiny The aperture is f/11, the shot was taken at 5x magnification, and at that magnification the DOF is only about 1mm.
