    When i was in the zoo yesterday, i also went to the bug house they got there. Offcourse all of the little bugs were behing glass (except for #1), but its great practice for the spring and fall. Cant wait till the little bugs will show themselves again :)

    wonderful shots! I didn't realize you shot macro until recently. Looks to me like you've been doing it for a while! 1 & 5 are my favs

    Wow, amazing shots!!
    I'm looking into purchasing a macro lens. To catch pictures of those insects, what mm do you use?

    Is #7 a dung beetle?

    haha.

    Great shots though. I love Macro, hope to one day own a decent lens. Till then, I'll shoot macro with my little point and shoot which actually does decent pictures.

    Thanks for the comments everyone :)
    Yeah, i was amazed how clean the glass was. Maybe i was lucky and they just cleaned it or something, i was a happy camper though :)
    I started to look into macro more last summer. I used the sigma 70-300mm 1:2 macro back then, but that just didnt cut it. But with this lens and the lumiquest, i cant wait for the bugs to come out of hiding. And thanks again for the tips TCimages, greatly apriciate it :)
    I used the sigma 105mm 2.8 macro for these shots.

    Those are some really impressive results from the sigma, i have been looking forward to seeing what you would do with it and it is definatly not a let down. How you got them so clear from behind glass i dont know, did you have an off camera flash through a different side of the terrarium?

    nope, i just shot them with the flash on the hotshoe, with the lumiquest on it. Just had to keep the lens close to the glass and try not to tilt the camera to much. And it did help that the glass was fairly clean.
    Im pretty happy with the sigma. Im still trying to find out the best settings when im shooting macro, but im happy with the first result. Didnt expect them to be this sharp, im glad i bought it :)
