Night Garden

I've already provided the insects in my garden with a pond, log piles, native flowers and other organic nectar-rich plants. This year I've resisted the urge to cut back the dead foliage and fading flower stems to create a bit of winter cover for my critters. Photo's from top to bottom; An Angle Shades moth is perfectly camouflaged among the dead leaves of my Centaura; Garden spider with prey; a Crab Spider cuts a ghostly figure with it's prized Small White.

I've always struggled getting the right flash settings at macro distance. Putting 2 sheets of 75gsm white paper in front of my flash seemed to do the trick.
