all 5D2 with MP-E65 and ringflash - find the latter less hassle than MT-24 or 430ex for shots taken at my work place in my lunch break, nice simple set up.

Bin popular with springtails, probably not unlike Brian's Compost bin. The plastic makes quite an interesting background as in #3 and #4 above. The area to the right of the path is of special interest having an area fenced off to protect the rare Two-lipped Door Snail.

the rim of the metal crown of the bin provides shelter for Springtails if the sun comes out

I want to be there when one of those cute little Globulars holds up a sign for the camera. :)
