An aphid caught in a web awaits its doom.


Dar’st thou die?

The sense of death is most in apprehension;

And the poor beetle that we tread upon

In corporal sufferance finds a pang as great

As when a giant dies.

William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure, III.i

    • For some reason, perhaps because they tend to be found at head height, I have found myself photographing aphids a lot this year. They are surprisingly interesting! I even have a shot of one giving birth.

      • The more you see these things the more interesting they become. I’ve been looking at the pretty little spiders that you photographed recently.

      • I found one of the yellow ones yesterday. I couldn’t get a decent picture but I know where it hangs out now….
