Each one from this series is more beautiful. This one is my fave. The little bug just makes it, it’s color pops.

Excellent extreme close up on that tiny little creature.
The MPE-65 must be incredible and difficult to use. It was once on my wish list, but to the end I opted for the 180 Macro.

A fascinating selective focus peep into the wonderful world of bugs and their adventures! Beautiful combination with the violet petals.

It looks like the orange aphid will slip into a huge hole. The extreme closeup makes a flower magical. Well seen and well done.

This one tickles my fancy- It has a lot of charm and really made me smile. Not something I'd expect to feel about an aphid!

A very special photo. The cute aphid seems to be enjoying its solitude.
