  2. I love these sorts of pictures where there's absolutely no clue about the scale so you can make of it what you will... it's a striking image. :-)

  3. I did this one with a 200mm macro lens mounted on a bellows mounted on camera body mounted on a tripod. The Niger thistle seeds we put out for the migrating finches got rained on and became necrotic, quite ugly really, and then it grew a tiny forest of the most amazing shoots. I photographed their life across a few days. I saw the incredible world we live in at a very tiny level, and found it to be complex as any other life form I have paid attention to with my cameras.
    It was a bit equipment and technique intensive, but worth every bit of the set up effort.

  4. Thanks for sharing the technical bits - that adds a whole extra dimension for me... education. :-)
    I'm always eager to learn things like that as I love to experiment.
