    I have no idea what #3 is, but I'm sure glad he's only about 1mm in size.

    Good shots...number 3 is a Pselliopus nymph...the baby version of what I just posted in a thread yetserday. I like that hopper too in the second from the last shot.

    Definitely feeling that spikey hopper! Great light and dof is spot on.

    Thanks folks and thanks for the ID on Mr. Spiney, Nate. By the time I got out this morning, the light was too harsh for birds, so I figured I'd poke around my vegetables. It's amazing what you see if you look closely.

    All done with

    Canon 7D
    Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro Handheld
    Canon 430EX off-camera with HSS and Lumiquest Softbox

    QFT. I find more stuff in the local weeds and wildflowers than anywhere. Just about anything that has a bloom is going to draw a crowd.

    Also a nice thing about the light. High noon is just fine for critters! It can be a little taxing on the photographer though. I guess thats paying our dues or something though. :sillysmi:
