Theo Bosboom - Hey you!

I was taking extreme close ups of a beautiful Astrantia flower in the Austrian Alps near Bürserberg, when to my surprise I saw something moving in the frame. When I slowly shifted the focus ring, this little fellow (I guess a springtail) came into sight. It seemed to be very interested in what I was doing. Picture is taken with the Canon MP-E 65 macro lens, which allows magnification up to 5 times life size.

Location: Austrian Alps
