Globular springtail reflection

By philgood
This is a Globular Springtail about 2mm long, so very tiny, it is in a acer leaf looking into a micro puddle, must be checking out his beard I think!

Wow - never heard of them - but know what they look like now! Brill macro shot - of something so small. I've just invested in a macro lens so hopefully one day I will be able to do something as good as you!Smile

WOW!....................I know just how small these fascinating little beastes are................you can find them even during winter beavering away under almost any long established leaf litter:

I deliberately set my garden with old bits of flat wood or a half log or two..it is amazing what you find lurking underneath them at all times of year:

Even if you don't do Macro Photography, it can be fascinating to explore with a good magnifying glass. especially if you have kids:

I ave a SONY 28-100 Macro lens plus a set of three extension tubes.....I do OK but not as OK as this:

More please!
