These slightly hairy, phytophagous beetles have returned for a third year but, so far, in reduced numbers. They spent quite a lot of time on the Winter Jasmine, which is growing alongside the Bryony.

I tried photographing them through my Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro lens with the Raynox MSN on the front. The working distance is very short and the positions of the beetles on the foliage meant that I mostly had difficulty in getting close enough. The first image is from that combination.

The remainder were from the lens with no Raynox but with a matched x2 TC behind it. That gave greater working distance and easier framing but lower magnification.

All images have been cropped.

Thanks, Birdie.

I don't think I had either until these appeared. There are a few tiny, brown species. I think they are more at home in an orchard than in a garden.
