    The two main things I'm currently researching and working on is achieving better (more appropriate for the photograph) DOF and better lighting.

    Here's some samples of some that are among my "best" from the past several months ("best" isn't saying too much, but better than they used to be).

    Any comments, critiques, etc. are always appreciated!

    Tarantula - Acanthoscurria geniculata

    Oh, you should add a warning in your title that this thread is DEFINITELY not suitable for any arachnophobes. Else Mentos might find her way in here and die of a heart attack ;)!!!

    Very cool, what lense are you using? Im guessing not a macro. I've been getting into the same sort of concept lately, but mostely insects, but am struggling with my lenses, I'm very very keen on buying the Canon 100mm F/2.8 Macro.

    Check out these images by Igor Siwanowicz, the most recent photos have been taken with the Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro, he has some very interesting work. http://blepharopsis.deviantart.com/

    No, not a macro. :( Just the standard "Lumix" lense that came with the camera (Panasonic FZ-20).

    There is a macro setting on the camera, but if I use the onboard flash, it makes it all but worthless.

    Well maybe use that Macro setting and experiment with lighting other then your flash.
