Wee buggers

These newly-hatched plant bug nymphs were found aggregating on a lemon leaf in the garden and I decided to try illuminating them through the leaf.

Don't think I really got the composition perfect though I think it's still an interesting enough image.

Have you seen the picture of the snail mantle on Snail's Tales? It's buried somewhere in the archives but it's worth having a look for it. It's also illuminated from below to show off the vascularisation.
