More awesome photos! What a great lens, especially considering that you took those with extension tubes. Now, how did you get the bugs to hold still long enough to take the pictures? I can't seem to manage that at all!

Urrgh, what's that thing in the first shot? lol!

I love the green leafy type things, no idea what they are called though!

Wish i could afford some extension tubes, I would really like to get some even more close up shots of some of these dragon and damsel flies.

jay,
they're in the yard. my problem is i really have to go look now. last fall we had to cut down a wisteria bush that had just gotten too big for where it was at. it was about 6' high and 10' across. i got about 75% of my macros from this bush and i really miss it.

rom, i looked around and i think the bug you mentioned is a type of assassin bug.
