Let's shrink things down even further than a miniature sausage dog. It's finally got warm and the dragonflies and damselflies are making an appearance. Here we have a female large red damselfly (Pyrrhosoma nymphula) having a bit of a rest on a white Spanish bluebell (yes, I know that a traditional English one would have been more in keeping, but explain that to the fly). I couldn't find a male anywhere. Being red all over, the males look even more striking. I'll try and track one down when I get the chance.
Hand held, no flash, Sigma 105mm macro, surgeons hands!
Macro photography of insects gives you a completely different view of them, the details you can see are quite amazing. You do get a nasty shock if a bumble bee flies in front of your lens though, I nearly jumped out of my skin!
