Why repulsive? We also eat the honeydew produced by aphids - of course after it is processed by bees. In my opinion (and I think I'm not alone) this is the most delicious kind of honey.

it's just that the aphids reminded me of ticks sucking out the plants blood....actually I find all insects equally fascinating and repulsive at the same time

Clap Clap It is amazing what you can do. You must have great patience, great equipment and and a excellent eye for what you want to capture. Bravo.

Patience - yes. Keen eye - maybe. Equipment - not at all. Good macro lense (not necessarily expensive, mine is worth about 200$) and a stable tripod is all you need.
Anyway, thanks for your appreciation =D
