all very good but the light on the eye in 2 is especially nice. Likewise the first shot with the flower is just excellent, it provides a sense of scale and depth reference for the hovering bug.

just amazing. if anyone has ever tried to catch a bird in flight at a long focal length, and the difficulty that entails, think of trying to do that with tiny insects, and a depth of field that's no wider than a few millimetres and you really begin to see how fantastic these images really are.

Would you mind telling us what equipment you use and how you managed to capture these Carl?
