Monsters in the Garden

After spending the morning working in the garden I had some time to get out the Macro lens and do some bug hunting. Found this speedy little jumping spider that was happy to sit still long enough to get a few shots of him.He didn't like the flash much,

Then after the sun drove me inside I worked on a few shots that I'm putting into a calendar for a Christmas present to family and came across this Bee-Eater shot from years ago. The original was under exposed and quite dark, but thanks to Youtube and some training videos on Lightroom and Photoshop I managed to resurrect it.
