This is unbelievable stuff. You and Danny and Willow are taking macros to the next level. They're not just - here, dig it, look at this bug magnified 300X. The novelty of that wears off after a while. You're treating this like candids, or portraits using different lighting and composition - only in macro, and your subjects are insects. Wonderful.

I bet those are spider egg nests. The spider peeking over the leaf is neat; too bad you couldn't get the leaf in focus too. I like the butterfly because you were able to get more DOF so the leaf is also in focus

EXCELLENT !!! work as usual Love the first shot with that light breaking across it. Half in shade and half in sunlight. They are small so to see that is amazing. Selective focus is bang on where it should be in all three shots.

All the best over there and keep them coming :|

Danny.

Just like to thank all of you for your very kind comments...I did not expect so many positive views, as I was not too sure how the shadow lighting of the first pic, and half covered spider will appeal to you. Thanks for the positive comments all of you!:-)

Danny, the shadow was caused by my bounced flash rather than sunlight. As the opening was very small, and the curved leaf was above the spider, the bounced flash cast the shadow. I avoided direct flash as it would have been too harsh.

Thanks again all for looking!
