    It's your usual top of the line macro insect work, the only difference the bugs are....unique. I know I sure as hell have no clue as to what they are and I have a feeling most of the others who viewed them are in the same position. Kinda hard to comment when we don't knoe or have any ties to the bug shown :(

    Your macro work certainly is impressive.

    I love the colour of the bug's eyes in that second shot.

    Ive always wondered Doenoe, or "Dan" as some people say, if it is completely neccessary to use a ringlite to get the crispness you get but i know all you use is 430 and a soft box which is alot less pricey then the MR14. however do you find the soft box is a bit bulky carrying around in the bush? thats what im debating right now...

    Thank you. Bugs shouldnt give you the heeby-jeebies. Just be glad they are around and have a closer look every now and then. Maybe you can apreciate them a bit more then :)
    Thanks for the reply :) I just started to try and give the bugs i photograph names. Sometimes its very easy, sometimes i cant even find out what they are. But from now on i will do my best and give you the names of the bugs on the pics :)
    Yeah, he probably saw night fever or another disco movie. Thanks for the comment :)
    Cheers :)
    (some people say Daan, which is my real name ;)) But like you said, as far as i can see its not really neccessary to use a ringlight. I can get some very nice images with the Lumiquest. It is rather big and sometimes i have problems to get my camera close enough, due to branches or other stuff. But you just try and if you cant get the shoot you want, you just live with it (after you cursed for a few moments). There is always another bug to take pics of :)
