    been bug hunting again. It was a really sunny day, but i was suprised at the amount of bugs i found.....alot less then i usually saw. Really had to look good this time, or had to go threw nettles and tigercrawl to a certain bug (ok, not really, but it came close) I didnt feel like making several posts this time, so i just dropped all the pics in this thread here.

    #9 For spidermen mating is a dangerous job, since he can end up as supper

    Jeesh, Daan,
    You've gone and done it again! Yet another outstanding set (worth any scrambling through the brush that you did). My favs are #1 and #9

    All amazing as usual, but 1, 7 & 8 are beyond amazing. (I love it when a macro shot also features some strong composition.)

    awesome sharpness and clarity across the whole set.

    Just a quick question, how do you get the chance to find these insects, then take an in focus picture? I can hardly seem to be able to approach an insect let alone get within a few inches to a foot for a half second to take a picture.

    Thanks and yeah, that going through the brush is worth it. I love it when a pic comes out good. Especially with the skittish bugs like the dragons and butterflies.
    Cheers :)
    Yeah, sorry about that. But it isnt the hardcore bit yet, that came a second after this pic (and i missed the shot) It only took him a second too. So if the misses calls you a Spiderman in bed, thats not a good thing :lol: Thanks for the reply :)
    I really like the Sigma 105mm and it isnt as expensive as the Canon one. Offcourse you'll see some difference in the sharpness, but i can totally live with that. And a flash is something that (i think) you really need. Dont have to have a Lumiquest softbox (or the like), cause a normal difuser can work good too. And thanks for the reply :)
    Yeah, do it......just make sure you know what you're getting into. Nettles arent that great (but the fact that you can shoot bugs makes up for that :mrgreen:)
    Thank you :)
    If you read THIS you can read pretty much everything i do. And thank you for the comment :)
    Thanks. You just have to make sure you got some free time and alot of patience. Also, when you're approaching a bug, make sure you have your camera ready. I always approach a bug with the lens facing forward. Cause i have the softbox on the flash and if i turn the camera when im near the bug, it gets scared by the big white thing. And you can make some shots while you're getting near a bug, so if it gets scared and flies off, you allready have some shots. Not as close as you would like them to be, but at least you have something to work with.
    Hope that helps :)
