    The harvestmen meeting looks like something out of war of the worlds! And the setting for the snail is perfect, the shapes really compliment each other.
    What on earth is a froghopper? Never heard of or seen anything like it.

    Nice set. The snail is my favourite. Feels like there could be more detail to be found from the shieldbug, but am viewing on my phone.

    First time I've seen a froghopper. With looks like that I doubt he gets laid much. Outstanding set.

    That's a superb set Alf. Super clarity and detail. #2 is absolute magic - so much in focus! The snail is delightful.

    The harvestman shot I have now been informed that they are a male (distant) and female Leiobunum rotundum. I am now miffed that I did not know this and didnt hang around for some courtship.
