haha, thanks Andy! Great compliments coming from a pro like you. I'm not out to impress, just enjoy sharing our little garden mates with you guys.

After checking your flicker - sterling work mate.  I would doff my hat (but I'm not actually wearing one!).

Jake, these are very good shots, my friend.  You can be rightly proud of them.  I REALLY loved the spider!  My ultimate compliment good Sir, "I wish that photo was mine!"

Valerie - I'll either give Jake tips, or he'll give them to me.  Either way, I'm dead happy. The only way I could be more happy is if I'd taught the bugger!

Andy, you have serious competition here…You make me want to pick up my good camera again.

Glad you enjoyed them Rob! Always good to hear feedback, makes all those hours stalking in the garden worthwhile haha. The amount of time the missus has seen me running into the house to grab the camera, only to come back disappointed as the little buggers have decided to move on!

Truly glorious photos, Jake. They take the familiar (jumping spider, solitary bee) and make them seem totally exotic just because of the detail that the naked eye can't see. Please take more!

thanks lissa!

I can see the Jumping Spider now Jake. They are just incredible photos. Had another look at your Ingadi photos too - you've got a real talent.

Might do Gabrielle :-)

Nice ID'ing skills there Elaine! In hindsight it's definitely not the stingless but a solitary like you said! Always good to learn something new thanks!

I have a few more photo's that I need help ID'ing I'll make sure to ask for help again...stay tuned.

By the look of the white stripe on the abdomen of the bee, I reckon it is one of the solitary bees. The stingless bees (eg Tetragonula (aka Trigon) are all black on the abdomen and mostly black on the head and thorax as well. See this site: as if you've the time, you could wander around the photos and perhaps lob onto whichever one or ones you have at your place.

Important note about adding photos:

Always add photos using the "From my computer" option, even if you are on a mobile phone or other device.
