    this last bug, I am making a special post for it! It is just insane. Very tiny, first pic is at 1:1 (which can give you an idea how small this thing was) and the two others are at 2.5:1 (roughly). Unfortunately I was not able to control the nasty reflections of the flash.

    Still, I find it incredible. The head is hiden behind the carapace that is transparent at the level of the head. Nature is just insane!

    Amazing photos!

    The snow bug and tortoise? beetle are awesome.

    You had this guy with the bugs, but in case you didn't realize, it's an ant mimic jumping spider.

    Jeff... damn, it sure did fool me!!!!!:wall: :wall: thank you for spotting that out, now I wish I had taken more pictures of it :( :( . Really amazing, now that I look at it, specially the eyes, I just cannot believe I did not see it.

    Pato, thanks a lot for the nice comments. I am sure you will like it in the Guianas, which ever you choose (although I have yet to go to Guyana, should be soon). Maybe I have to go to Argentina one day! On this trip, we only seen one Theraphosa, which worries me a little as last time we have seen tons.

    Take care

    Too bad I do not have other good shots of that spider, I am a bit sad now, I guess I should have paid more attention to it, nevertheless, here are two others of the animal.

    Amazing work Martin! Your pics get better each time and if these are any indication I cant imagine the next batch:eek: .

    How about some T's!?!

    Lol, it fooled me, too. I thought it was a jumping spider, but a friend looked at the images and told me it is actually in Corinnidae, another spider family with ant mimic genera.

    It is a ponerine ant mimic.
     
  20. I love the second hummingbird pic. The green one. :)
