    Photos Globby Apple Party

    There is an apple in the pond, blown off the tree by the strong winds last night, and this afternoon, the globular springtails have set about having a bit of a party on it. These springtails are 1mm or so in size, smaller than the full stop on your computer keyboard. They are the aquatic globular springtails, Collumbola Sminthuridae.

    Nah - the apple is still where it fell, floating half submerged in the pond. I just rested the camera on a bean bag and used Live View.
