    More from the backlog. These were captured last May with my FZ200 with Raynox 150 close-up lens and KX800 twin flash, using autofocus at f/8 (equivalent to f/45 on full frame) and 1/1600 sec. The raw files were processed a couple of days ago using DXO Optics Pro, Silkypix and Lightroom.

    These images are taken from a 29 image sequence of 1300 pixel high images in this album at Flickr.

    Perhaps these are Speckled Bush Cricket nymphs.

    #1 There it was, minding its own business ...

    #7 ... and ... ? ... do what? Have a look at the intruder's left antenna, all bent around.

    #8 Now it is the right antenna that is curled up. What is it up to?

    Looking at your macro kit I noticed there's a vital piece missing from mine, a pair of knee pads!

    Thanks for the comments. My apologies for not responding sooner. I've been having a rest from photography for a month or three.
