Springtail feeding on Pollen
I quite often find springtails sitting on the stamen of our Azalia. I tend not to photograph it simply because I often can't get the colour right. It's either too harsh or there's weird stuff going on. Anyway, I decided to just take the shot.

It's a very heavy crop as I was at 1:1 on the 100 with no tubes. Wind was blowing a touch so all three tubes would have been literally impossible for keeping the focus.

yeah I tend to find one or two often sat on them. I suspect you'll find a few now too :)
