Getting in Close

 In 'normal' years, I try to record all the wildlife that I can in our local wood, churchyard and garden during the year. However, with lockdown, this has become more obsessive! I am now starting on the very small creatures that are too small to identify with the naked eye and some are so minute as to require peering at through the microscope. Here we have 4 beetles and a member of the Collembola - a group of Arthropods separate from insects. The first image is using a closeup filter on my macro lens and is a Pollen beetle. The rest are my first attempts at recording with a USB microscope and I did not record the magnification but the beetles are around a 2 mm each.
