Did you splat it soon after, Carol?

This is a great picture(s) of a greater pest.
Don't know how you manage these shots.

two lovely images Carol !! I think I like V2 better Smile They are not silly at all at night when one tries to catch a few zzzzzz's Smile

Carol you are a creepie crawley portrait genius. really I have to echo ddolfelin "How on earth do you do it?" By the way until today I had really never understood the difference between a mosquito and a midge, long sexy legs? Is that the answer?

I like both, if 'like' is the right word. One of the joys of summer that I can do without, and like wasps a comprehensive rebuttal of the theory of intelligent design.

So that's what one looks like close up?
I wouldn't have thought it possible to capture a midge - maybe yours are bigger than Scotland's greatest pest!
Excellent photography.

Very annoying buggers Carol! We had plenty of them in Portugal this time...
Specially near the fig trees. We were picking ripe figs at my mums place and kept getting bitten!
V2 shows him off even better with the lighting on show!

Poor thing...such stubby legs Grin

I don't know if we have these over here.

I love the almost extreme right angles of the legs in V2 Grin
