Face to Face (macro shots)

Sipping bee

Believe me, this is a beautiful creature

Really it is; one of the prettiest in the garden

In all its glory, a Comma

And a face I can't resist

For more from today see the Arachnids and Butterflies & Bugs albums

Camera note: All shots taken with the Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG macro lens

    It's a great camouflage as well. With wings closed they merge so well with the autumn leaves. This one kept hopping up into the beech tree, but was singularly unconcerned by my presence. It even landed on my shoulder (and then my head) at one point.

    Lovely seeing the small creatures getting a look-in :up:
    The close-up of Believe me, this is a beautiful creature is a great- different- perspective. Love the texture.

    My favourite spider! She's great and has a great spot on a rose bush for catching flies.
