have a feeling a couple of ppl will know who took this photo ..;)

when this challenge was announced i thought either tod or an insect ..

walked into the grass near my house and saw tiny movements .. it was the long legged flies which i hadnt seen for a long long time .. they are so small you can hardly seen them unless you are quite close ..

i put tod on a lead attached to my left arm as i was near the road and didnt want to have to worry about him wandering off if i was concentrating taking pics ...

got down and took a few shots with tod making this difficult as he started vomiting ... thats another story .. also he was pulling on the lead ..

felt pretty lucky i got this shot considering the difficulties i was operating under .. ;)

Well, it was always going to be a bejewelled insect , or Mr Tod :) This is another Roz classic, and is definitely ribbon worthy.

Roz, is that you? I'm a little doubtful though...

This could be one of at least two photographers I can think of who are excellent at bug macros. I'm fascinated by that little face.
