Nice ones Heinrich. I especially like the detail you managed to capture on the last ant and the colorful leaves (?) set the little guy off.

Hi Susan and thank you. The color comes from small dried out flower petals, the ants were collecting it for a new nest, which I will have to destroy tomorrow.

Take care,

Thank you, in real live they are so tiny you would never even notice the eyes.

Take care,

Heinrich, can you please state all the hardware you use to get these pics. Extension tube? Flash?! I am interested in your technique. Thanks!

Heinrich, you can tell it is spring there, the insects are out and busy, great shots. I have never seen a jumping spider before and thanks for sharing. Bob

Tracy, K5 for a camera, DAF 2.8 100mm macro for a lens and the build in flash with a home made diffuser. No tubes. Any DSLR will do and tubes do work, I just don't use them.

Take care,

Hi Bob and thank you. You probably have seen them but not recognised them, they are only about 4-6 mm long.

Take care,
