So what you see here is the remains of an aphid, it's body attached to a podium created by a braconid wasp. This tiny parasitic wasp finds a target host and deposits an egg inside it. This egg will be dormant until the host is big enough for the larva to hatch and then the wasp larva feeds on the insides of said host.

Eventually, the parasitic wasp will emerge and fly away and so nature goes on...

I find spider mites challenging - they are nearly always on the move and not very big...

Looks like a kind of long-jawed spider.

It is in a nice setting!

Great shot, Pete! Those beetles are tiny! You did a good job with it, must have cropped quite a bit. The bug is nicely posed in the flower.

It is difficult to constructively critique this image without some idea of the technique used. Was flash used and if so was it an attempt at full flash or just a fill flash. There is motion blur only in the specular highlights that suggests that the shot is handheld with flash and that sunlight has overpowered the flash. Basically using fill flash only works if you can keep your subject shaded and out of direct sunlight because it will always pick out the subjects movement or your own. And in most cases motion blur is even less desirable than lack of focus, it attracts the viewers eye whereas our tendency is to ignore things that are out of focus.

Great comments, thanks. Yes, it was handheld with fill-in off the camera flash. I've only just started with this so every day is a learning day.
