Great shots!
I wonder how do you find flies and other insects to shoot this time of year in the UK.
I live in Greece and it looks that everything is gone until next spring.. :rolleyes:

Great! I like the spider with the fly shot best, but the others are nothing to sneeze at :)

Thanks all for the comments :)

N4505- as long as it's above freezing and not raining, I can generally find some bugs about in the garden. Some of them ony appear in the Winter. Try spraying some sugar water on the leaves of a bush (in a sunny position) on a sunny day.

Good stuff as usual Brian.
