It seemed that the blustery wind was enough to keep this individual on a leaf for at least several minutes. I took lots of shots but, due to frequent subject movement, only this image is reasonably good. This was on 11 May.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/160 at f10, ISO 400, hand-held.

Thank, Birdie.

There is an unusual effect on the vertex of the head. There are dozens of tiny, bright, transverse stripes, with some CA effect. At first I thought they showed motion blur but the "shift" laterally is not found in the ocelli or the compound eye. Also, they curve around the head at the sides. I think this is reflections off sculpturing of the cuticle.
