Spring can't be far away.......
Lens: smc DFA 100 macro Camera: K5 Photo Location: Alberta, Canada ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/150s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: Heinrich Lohmann, 04-02-2013, 09:43 PM

... because the bugs are coming out. Haven't posted anything in a while, so here goes: first one is a small bug that I had never seen before (about 15mm in length) second one is at 100% and the other 2 are of course just a couple of Jumping Spiders.









Comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Welcome back, these are wonderful detailed shots. Viewing in macro like this, makes me appreciate bugs and spiders so much more.

Heinrich, it so nice to see you again. Outstanding shots. Those jumping spiders made me step back from my computer.

Thank you Susan for the kind comments, these little jumpers are about the first insects we see in the spring (aside from the flies on which they feed)

Take care,
