This post is an assortment of various insect macros taken in the first two weeks of May 2016. All bar this first Mayfly shot were taken at Blashford Lakes Nature Reserve. The mayfly was taken by the river Stour near Canford Magna.
This Harvestman Spider image is a panorama shot of 5 images – all taken on my Canon MPE-65mm lens.
Now for an assortment of Sawflies…
And a more normal fly feeding…
A type of Caddisfly is next
And a small moth or fly ? I am at present unsure what it is.
And last but not least a Click Beetle – the purple in the background being a card I placed to stop the flash blackening out the background.
