@Frederike: Hmm...i don't create this macro-world .... It's all naturall. I just spent some time on my knees (and more) searching .... One who's willing to look, will see them. (Making foto's needs some experience :-) ).

@Annie Viguié: It's like a finishing touch ... And without the red i probably didn't spot it ... it's about 1 cm tall. Thx for your comment again.
