p.p. work
Toni, that's a great idea and creative. As long as these little guys sit still long enough to cature a couple in sequence. Thanks for the idea. I'll try it.
Excelent capture and well done.


Great one!

Thank you!'s actually 3 photos composited together. When a critter is that tiny, the depth of field is really shallow, so if they sit still long enough, I take shots of the length of their body and splice them together in Photoshop. It's a little extra work, but I am enjoying the results:)

very impressive
My photoshops skills aren't nearly that good! I can't even tell this isn't one photo.
