Excellent series, Brian. I've don't think I've ever seen one in that position before. And he's missing a leg on the left side-reckon it's a deformity?

Some cameras, some lenses, some lights.

Lovely series, they do look like something aquatic really close up don't they?

Fantastic series - the best detail and most unique captures of a harvestman I've seen by far.

Hiya Brian,

Excellent series of shots, what a great pose, never seen one in that position before, lucky you :D

Well I've sorted my pond at long last:D it was Mice but not where I thought, the little buggers had sneaked up the back of the header pipe to the waterfall & managed to much a six inch long strip ( vertically )of the liner hence that massif loss of water:evil:

I managed to keep 25 fish alive along with two adult newts & fifteen young which can't be bad eh :lol:

Hopefully now I can start shooting once again:confused::lol:

Cheers for now

Wonderful series Brian. You have an incredible variety of insects, spiders and garden creatures and with out a doubt have mastered capturing their beauty. Thanks for sharing.
