Springtail Photography


Springtail’s are fascinating and highly variable group of animals. Many are small and white, living below the surface for most if not their entire life. While others are large enough to see with the un-aided eye, crawling around the surface, many colourful, hairy, scaly, long or round!

With improvements in camera technology photography of these incredible animals is now something achievable by many. To help you in your photographic endeavours Alan Cann has produced a helpful and informative blog post all about the emerging field, see the link below.
