    Is this photo unedited colour wise? It’s almost hard to believe, it’s so stunningly beautiful. I’ve been looking through your blog a bit, and I have to say, it’s probably the most facinating photo blog I’ve seen. Really putting the spotlight on these usually neglected and misunderstood little guys. Keep it up!

      No, no photo is ever unedited but editing is minimal – about 20 sec in Picasa for optimising saturation/colour, contrast and brightness and 10 sec in NI for noise and sharpening. I only work with what is already there, no photoshopping involved. These ‘little guys’ are what keep the earth turning. Will do, thanks. M

    Poor thing, she looks rather bedraggled.

    Fantastic photo. Macro insect photos never cease to boggle the mind.

    Beautiful Mark. How do you find these little lovlies.

    • Mark said, on 02/05/2013 at 7:28 pm

      Thanks Grete. It’s a matter of experience and knowing their behaviour from observation and interaction. Then, with some care, it’s relatively easy to get these shots.
