Challenge has finished
In this challenge, show us tiny insects, spiders, or arthropods, in relation to their natural surroundings. Macro and close-ups are welcome, but the subject of the entry must be seen as very small in its environment. Show the insects or spiders outside, on leaves, flowers, trees, just doing what comes naturally to them, not inside under studio lights. TO BE CONSIDERED TINY, THE SUBJECT SHOULD BE LESS THAN 1 cm IN SIZE. Size of entry: MAXIMUM 1,600px on LONGER SIDE.
