Winter Macro

Still no sign of insect life this year so here are some images taken in late December. I can pretty much guarantee finding tiny Globular Springtails in my garden in the winter months, normally under rocks or logs. On this occasion I wasn't having much luck finding any until I started turning over some wet leaves on my lawn. I soon realised that practically every leaf had at least one Globular Springtail on the underside of it.

These images show the springtails on the leaves which form quite nice backgrounds I think.

  3. Probably the quickest to learn and easiest to use for basic cropping, adjusting colors, and basic special effects is called Ifranview. It's been around for years and if you just want to crop, or rotate, change the format, or fine tune the color balance of any digital photo, this is an excellent choice. photoshop masking service
