Either it's sand thrown up by that grasshopper or you've got some serious sensor cleaning to do bro. :laughing4:

You don't need fancy equipment. Could get all in for R3k if you don't have a camera. Buy an old 35mm film macro lens or buy a lens inverter tube - it will get you far and is cheap to get.

Was driving through the Karoo National Park spotting game when this oke jumped onto the windscreen - I nearly wiped him with the wipers.... but suddenly realised we were there to enjoy nature... and although small and seemingly insignificant - he was as much part of the nature we'd come to see.......... stopped the car and did the macro pic from inside through windscreen. 
I thought it was unique...  :thumleft:
