I'm loving the pics y'all send in here, so I thought I would add some of my favs here. I have a blast with this macro lens attachment for my cellphone, and plan to buy a more powerful one soon.

Here is an ant caught in the act of tending to these aphids for some sugary aphid droppings. All were promptly evicted.

A few random spiders. The little guy is about 1mm long.

I'm about to try to ID this guy, but for now I call him Aphid Hunter, as I caught him dragging one away, then found a clean shot today.

Last ones are what I believe to be ladybug larvae, aphids, a dragonfly that was kind enough to let me get within an inch of it's face, and some strange bugs I found last year under a Goji berry leaf.

If you like this stuff, there is a fantastic documentary called Life in the Undergrowth with David Attenborough that is all about this.

Thanks. I pulled a few from two years ago that I relay enjoy. Apparently my old phone had a much better camera.

The mosquito on that hornworm made my day.
