So I am still on the macro train at the moment, and this warm weather has brought the bugs out in force (though damn those mozzies!!!!).
So I spent four hours this afternoon, yes you read that correctly, stalking this little chap around the garden. He was very, very obliging, and even seemed to be curious about me and the large black box that I was waving around in front of his face. I am fairly sure he is a species of net winged beetle, I'm just not sure which. This little chaps are nectarivores and apparently have very short adult lives.
This is just one image, no focus stacking here. I figured I need to practice shooting macro hand held ;)
