    Here's one of mine, not the best shot in the world of Cinnabar Moth caterpillars (with added red soldier beetle).

    Great shot James, especially love the composition http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif

    Last spider from me today, same one as above (have moved said image so not sure if it will still show or not?) just a tad sharper....

    Common Blue butterfly I took a couple of months ago (one of my favourite pics so far) and a beauty of a spider in the garden.              

    Spotted a couple of links on my Flickr page from here, so I thought I'd share a few of my recent shots.   flight preparation... by markhortonphotography, on Flickr   Cockchafer (melolontha melo

    None of mine are that close-up as I have only a cheapy 3mB digital camera but within those limits, I'm quite pleased with these for the subject, if not the photos.

    Grabbed a couple of (not very good) shots of this little monster, around 2 inches long.

    Took me a while on Google to identify it as a Devil's Coach Horse Beetle. I can only recall seeing it once before here in Co Antrim, many years ago. Possibly more common in other parts of UK/Ireland?

    Although it has no 'sting in its tail' it can give a painful bite with its strong pincer-like jaws. It also emits a foul smelling odour, as a defensive secretion, from a pair of white glands at the end of its abdomen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocypus_olens). YUCK!!

    Red admiral. Quality isn't that good as I had to rush before the dogs scared it off.

    I must say, I use my Macro almost exclusively for wild flowers, however as I prepared this shot of Pyramidal Orchid, along came a Small Skipper and here we are!

    I wondered if anyone knew what this fella was? ;)

    Here are a couple more nice photos, which in my naivety I shall call dragonflies. I know I am wrong. ;)

    Hi simooshy great pics, I think your caterpillar is a Pale Tussock Moth and you're right they are dragonflies. The first one I think is a Common Darter and the second a Migrant Hawker, but I'm not too sure as I'm not very familiar with dragonflies.

    Possibly a Buff Tip moth?

    my first flutterby with macro lens :D:rolleyes: was a happy bunny with this one

    That's great Louby, I can never get very good shots, I think I should save up for a lens.

    Here's one of my butterfly ones.

    My first attempt at some insect photography.

    Large Red Damselfly, Pyrrhosoma nymphula (found out after research!)

    post-7322-1243711695_thumb.jpg

    Not the best photo in the world, taken with a relatively cheap camera (not one of those fancy SLR £400-for-another-lens cameras!))
