No idea what these are but they are really tiny and I almost didn't see them.





Some lichen thingy...

You're really getting proficient with the macros, the first three remind me of something you would see in the ocean. All very nicely captured

Those are sundew, a carnivorous plant. Bugs get stuck to the droplets on the ends of the strands you see there. Very nice shots!

Ah! Thanks for that, I knew the droplets were not moisture as it was after 1pm.

Yes, it does look like sundew. Such a tiny plant too and so well captured. Really enjoyed this series of macros deaning. 2 & 4 are my favorites.

Great, that first one looks like sic-fi material. Last one is cool and unusual for a macro.

Being carniverous, I hope they don't grow any bigger!
