Best wishes to you, Ade: and what a cracking shot.......detail such I have never seen before, and possibly am glad I cannot see in real life.......would scare the wits out of me.
Take care.

Hellish close Ade,I'm just glad they aren't this big in real life Wink

Never wanted to get this close either, but now that Ade has done the impossible, hey, he's not so bad. A few more spikes than we care for, yet all those eyes in a smooth globe look smooth. That miner's lamp between the antennae seems handy. Give him a big wet kiss on the eyeballs for me and let him get back to the important dirty work fate has assigned him to. TG

Phenomenal detail in this outstanding close up Ade, not surprised to see the clicks fly in for this one. I take it this one got swatted after being snapped, some of those togs on Collard Hill yesterday that incurred your wrath were lucky that they did not befall the same fate!WinkTongueGrin

I think everyone above me has used up all the adjectives available to describe such a shot!

Absolutely incredible. I have never seen such detail in a macro and I am impressed with this.

Stunning shot and one that deserves all the awards and votes it will get.
