Lovely shot.

When I were a lad, back in't UK, I used to keep Harvestmen 'spiders' as pets. They used to like meat paste (sold in tiny jars as a sandwich spread).

Interesting. But I thought they were herbivores. Maybe they thought your paste was a vegetable.

White balance looks okay to me here, but I don't know what the scene looked like. Interesting critters! Did you have to shoot through glass?

Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Those are very impressive colors! The tiny bug might be a mite - mite be a might - just a guess.

One of the neat things about macro is that you discover things you couldn't see with the naked eye.
