image captionSimon Reed: "I think this may be an immature Paidiscura pallens or similar species. It was about 1mm long and I mistook it for the spiderling of a larger species at first. I spotted it floating through the air on a breeze, trailing a single strand of silk that eventually caught on some vegetation. The image is a manual composite of three separate handheld shots taken through a reverse 28mm lens on 68mm extension tubes. I love how delicate it looks, almost like it is made from glass."

image captionSumita Bali: "Saw this tiny ladybug climb up the wind chimes at my home. It was quite fearless and explorative and was not fazed by the many bumps it encountered on the way - and I thought to myself, 'I wish I could be this brave in life'."
