Although I have a 20D, 3 "L" lenses, a 500D close-up filter, etc., I was caught with my 300D and kit lens when my wife insisted I take a photo of this insect.

What's interesting is that I was handholding the camera and she was holding the stick that the insect was on. So, I was surprised when I got a some decent shots. These are cropped and processed in Corel PhotoPaint.

He's only about 2 1/2 inches long. Here's a further crop. BTW, used the on-camera flash at about 8 inches.

Finally, this one - cropped at about 400%. Guess I'll have to use that kit lens a little more often.

Definitely cool-looking. Don't know what that was hanging out of her mouth, tho.

Here she is with my son.
