WELL DONE !! Very good Macro shot here Jody how did you do this? I can barely see these little mites with my naked eye.. They just look like moving red dots to me :)) ..

Absolutely stunning capture. Even the helpless and empty look in the eyes of the prey, work so well. I am overwhelmed. 7/7 and lots of extra points above the normal rating. Alpo

Velvet Mite with Prey. This Velvet Mite is the size of a pinhead. The bug that he is eating is about 1/2 a mm.
