Super shot Viv.....i would have tried a smaller aperture as the body is a little soft.....i know how difficult it is due to movement.

Yes you are right it is soft but I thought that was better than whole thing blurred with hand shake. Never caught one eating before - did not want him/her to finish dining before I was ready! Viv

Superb (as usual) Viv. I saw SEM images of dust mites at a photo-imaging exhibition a week or so back and they were awesome. john

Thank you very much Maggi and John. John I am not buying an electron microscope for the end of my camera!! But I agree - I love EM images. I confess - I am a radiographer by profession (retired) - many radiographs and scans are beautiful. Viv
