Surprisingly small, so much as I hadn't noticed it!

Checking back through the caterpillar images just recently taken, I was surprised that I overlooked this - the first one I took but rejected because I thought it was too "straight on" but on second inspection tonight, I realised that there was an extra subject in the image. Not 100% in focus on it, as I was concentrating on the caterpillar, but if you consider the size of the central critter, you can appreciate why I hadn't noticed the tiny mite!

Wonderful capture Paul - definitely a small globular springtail.

Happenstance sometimes favours the photographer :)

Pure luck they were both at the same angle - as I said, I hadn't realised it was there to begin with, let alone that it was at the right plane.

Heh....I can't help but imagine what that caterpillar must look like from the springtail's point of view...very cool image.

Indeed, a sage thought, if the springtail could talk, what a tale it might tell...
