Very nice shots, I will have to get out to Arizona this winter to get some shots of the great things you have there in winter.

How come the macro shots shown in this forum has become so rediculously good recently? Better photographer or equipment or pp?
These are shots beyond my yardstick. The first one is eerie. Green Lynx Spider
has that ghost like transparency. Good shots and thanks for sharing.

Excellent, Fantastic. I echo Daniel's comments. So far beyond anything I can do at the moment.

Again I am truly impressed with your photography skills. These macro shots are incredibly sharp and well framed. I tried to google search for your vivitar 100mm 2.8 lens and could not find it. Is it a discontinued model? Thanks for sharing your pics with us. Looking forward to seeing more.

Ditto what Daniel says - no way have I ever come close to these awesome photos! I'd be super proud to take just one of this quality, and you post 5 of them! Incredible.

Of course they are all technically marvellous, wouldn't expect anything else from you Hog, but "Peekaboo" touches my heart and makes me smile!

Man, those are really great. How did you manage to get the grasshopper to stay still so close to it? Thanks for sharing them.
