Two super close-up captures. Like V2 best - the red insect gives an extra 'lift'.

I'm not sure if it has it's eyes on a previously captured prey or the new shield bug arrival: whatever, that shield bug seems to be playing a dangerous game.
Quite amazing macros, Carol.

an ugly bug convention ! Great shots ! Don't worry we'll be back to Crete to see you end of May /June !!!!Wink Not usually a city person but do love all these palm trees and old buildings in Elche. Please can you think of another great excursion for us !I'd actually like to explore the wee villages nearby .There was a shady village with a river running through it that the Chania bus went through that looked so interesting !
