I still am amazed by the last one - it's one of those fascinating shots that keeps me looking. All those lines of the legs and then the round eyes, lots to look at.

I've got the same feeling, really like it, and I guess that those round eyes wouldn't had the effect they have now if I would have used a flash.

I'm using an oldie a kiron-105mm-f/2.8 lens. Manual focus, what I got second hand for 100. Because I'm shooting with a Pentax K20d I've got the in body stabilisation what only makes this lens even better.

My personal idea is that the vr (or any kind of stabilisation) will be a great asset if you are shooting macro's. Those little things normally don't stay put long enough to put a tripod up.

Great macro photos. Especially like number two and three. Fascinating position in number three. Thank you
