Great shots Tan. Not 100% sure but the beetle may be a Chafer species with all that hair on it.Beautiful lighting on the spider shots. The last closeup shot of the abdominal pattern is particularly impressive.

Tan, I must say you do have a wide variety of insects around you. As I have said before simply amazing. When is the book going to debut?

Very nice captures Tan. I find the sharpness anddepth of field in number 5 to be exceptional.

Do you bribe the spider with flies to get it to pose so well for you?

This fella was quite impervious to movement. While moving the branch to get a better angle, it did not move at all!
