  1. Fabulous close-up, even if it does make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. :>)

  2. Your flash technique combined with your persistence keeps producing stunning images of invertebrates. I come to your blog expecting to see some new species and I m never disappointed.

  3. Excellent shot!

  4. What a fabulous animal portrait! And you solved a puzzle for me – saw one of these beasties the other day and although it was familiar I’d forgotten what it was (don’t get enough round our way to be familiar with them)

  5. Great picture. I caught 11 of these beasts in the moth trap last night.
