    Shot #1 is not at all bad.

    If you could induce the little blighter to land on something slightly less distracting it would stand out more.

    But that's just nit picking.


    Have you tried rotating shot #2 45 degrees anticlockwise? It might make it more menacing and give it more impact.

    Photo 1 has signs of camera shake.
    Photo 2 is a nice pov (point of view) but I've never been such a great fan of tilted photos... but DOF (depth of field) is nice, and the focus works!

    Pretty shots! Good work!

    Someone should invent a rifle-butt-pod for marco work! I kinda do that now with a tripod I have that folds up to about 18cm (26cm with head). It works pretty well. I can shoot 200mm at 1/10 or so with about 50% success (with anti-shake turned off) as opposed to about 0% success in a regular handheld stance.

    There is a rig just as you describe called a Bush Hawk!!

    It is more intended for long lenses, but would work well for macro as well I think.

    Cheers
