Long time no see.
I'm going to try to pick up the photography again.

Kick off with these 2 pictures from some springtails.

Grtz,
Kurt

Thanks folks.

These springtails often have the tendencies to reach out for my searchlight when I approach them with my set-up.
This one showed me a frontal view and then he staggered high in the air so I could take this shot from his underside. First time that they came in sight this way.

Grtz,
Kurt

Amazing springtails shots, really good quality. I love the reflection one. What was the substrate?

Nr 1 and 3: I used a cd and sprayed some waterdrops on it. Then I put in a area where a lot of springtails hang out.
Nr 2: just plain water in a puddle.

Thnx Les

Grtz,
Kurt

Imaginative set-up and I love the unusual angles and colours.
