found out what they are, they are psocids:

i think if anyone has seen those spit insects (you find them inside what looks like someone has spat on a plant) that is what they are.

Cool ruff! I was wondering if you'd managed to identify them.

a lesson in photography...always check your settings :rofl: . i was so confident with the following photo i was taking of a really deformed chicken. lucky i did not kill it as when i went back inside out of all the photos i took of it i could only find its only eye:

i took this photo today as i was getting rid of these pullets, when i first saw the photo i wandered what the heck had happened to the background as it looked like water. then i realized from looking at the next photos it was a cage behind the pullet that was made of fine snake wire and the light on the ground behind it.

this is one of a few photos i took yesterday that i was delighted with. using the technique of panning. have the camera set on sports mode and autofocus and follow the moving object while continually shooting and you can end up with a perfect photo, i edited this a little:

I love the picture of that flying bird!

I seem to have trouble just getting a picture in focus.

I need to learn more (or perhaps something) about depth of field. This was taken with a zoom lens. That is probably the problem. Somewhere something in the photo is probably in focus. :D

Back to the drawing board. Perhaps I should try the same shot with a smaller lens just for comparison.

Or use a tripod and cable release of the shutter. :wink:

this was taken with an ISO 400 and an F 22 and .25sec. i used a tripod and torches. mr ruff helped me by holding the branch down and holding another torch.

this was just another snake but i decided to photograph it anyhow and was very pleased with the results:

they were also taken in RAW when i can manipulate them more...when i reload photoshop on this computer (the old one) and maybe i will get the new computer (6 months old) back and working.

Ruff... Ruff... Ruff. What gallery are these in?? i want to see your whole collection.

But seriously, these are brilliant. I love photography although i need a new camera but im too cheap to go buy one. Instead i steal mum's Nickon all the time, she has all the lenses and stuff im just in the prosess of learning about all the settings myself :)

Congratulations on you fantastic artworks and i will enjoy turning back to this page to view more :P
