These will probably be the last outdoor insect macros of 2016. As since these were taken towards the end of October, the colder weather has seen a decline in insect activity.
These were taken in the woodland and on a bridge at Blashford Lakes.
Here is what I found on that outing.
First up something I have seen before – a barkfly – taken at around 2 and 4x magnification on my Canon MPE-65mm lens.
Now a couple of things I don’t know – the first creature, may well be some small aphid.
This one I definitely don’t have a clue on.
As well as those two unknowns – I found a new species of globular springtail to me – I think Allacma fusca.
Also about on the post was a froghopper.
And finally on a bit of old wood – this red spider mite – which I stacked 4 shots of in Helicon Focus.
