May 2021 Photo Challenge - SMALL THINGS - Entries Thread

As a bit of fun each month, we run this informal Photo Challenge, it's open to everyone.
No prizes, just the kudos.

This month's challenge, as chosen by last month's winner (Outcast), is "small things"

Have a go! Grab a camera! Submit your entry. Thanks.

The Fine Print:
* This is the Entries thread. Only for posting your entry, and its back story.
* Comments on other entries are not allowed here, but can be posted to the "Comments and Other Images Thread" -> HERE.
* Just to clarify, entries are limited to one image per person. Additional images may be posted to the "Comments and Other Images Thread"
* Of course, the image must be your "own work"
* all other normal forum rules, and image size limits, apply.

The "winner" will be determined by public vote, which will be run at the end of the month, and will get to choose next month's topic and have their photo immortalised in our "Photo Challenge Hall of Fame".

Good Luck!

During one of my recent walks, this guy landed in front of me. Luckily he hung around long enough for me to get a snap or two off.

This was supposed to be thru the little digital microscope so I could fit this little guy in however for what ever reason the captures would not record so I went to the microscope at the smallest magnification which was too much but I managed to catch its cute little face.
It was extremely small must only be a couple of hours old.

Small people amused by small things. My son used to love pulling apart old hard drives for the neodymium magnets. I find they make handy hooks and will stick hard to just about any ferrous metal.

A tiny seed that was resting against my security screen. Taken with my smartphone using a cheap, clip-on lens.
