    These are so awesome I can't believe this made it to the bottom of the forum without being commented on. Beautiful level of detail here and the colours are stunning. Great job.

    That's for sure: and I guess I missed them twice. These are just incredible: beautifully done, Jim.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for your comments.I find insects fascinating and really enjoy macro photography.I've done a lot of stargazing over the years through telescopes and have turned my attention in the other direction.I've been shooting macros with a MR-14ex ringflash lately and am still working on the lighting.
    Here's a shot from my earlier post.

    I'm getting pretty harsh speculars although the colours and contrast look good.I need to come up with a diffuser, maybe some layers of tissue paper or some bubble wrap.
    I haven't found any DIY stuff for this flash on the net.

    Amazing detail again, Jim. I'd accept the reflections to get those colors.

    Cheers,
    Rick
