Took these on the 19-20 Aug 06 weekend. The Queen weaver ant was not there, but the nest was still there...not sure where it went.....no pics of ants today.

But some spider, butt, hopper and LB pics.

FZ10+Raynox 250, ISO50, F8, 1/60s-1/125s, Twin flash for some, single flash for some. All diffused.

#1: What r u looking at!


#2: Another JS with Prey


#3: Two-Striped Telamonia


#4: My fangs!!!


#5:JS in nest


#6: Banded Phintella Male


#7: Another view


#8:I am not a butt person, but this fella was an opportunity shoot....happen to land near me.
Crop too tight....but no choice, had to zoom out on the Raynox 250 to shoot
Is this the Arhopala athada athada?


#9: Like the eyes:


#10: Ladybird


#11: Some kind of hopper


#12: Top view


Any C&C appreciated!

Those are all really nice, I especially like 3 & 4. That last bug is really weird looking.

TC

As always some really cracking macros - I don;t have a clue on how you could improve on those shots already. They look tack sharp with spot on exposure and lots of detail.

Cheers

#9 is my favorite!!!

I did not use my flash for a long time. I am addicted to available light.

But above 6 diopters we have little chance to get enough light.

Excellent - as always!

Thanks Donna, vaiboy, HarjTT, Fred and Sven!

Glad you liked these and thanks for the kind comments.

Sven, I have yet to try natural light macros.....but that would mean tripod mount....which I dread to carry around....and prob after fumbling around to get the WD right....the insect would be long gone!
