Orchesella cincta



This was the best photo I managed today, handheld, using the MP65mm macro lens. I found it crawling around in the soil of our raised bed. I particularly like the banding on the antennae. It's reported (http://www.stevehopkin.co.uk/collembolamaps/Entomobryomorpha/231ORcin/) as being one of the commonest species in the UK.
