    As the title says, this was my first real try with an insect. Luckily this fella held still for quite awhile before getting bored with me. It would help if I had a true Macro lens, but that will be awhile.

    this is an extremely good first attempt! what kind of lighting was used on the first? two and three i may suggest a great DOF but other then that these are beatiful.

    Wow! If this is your first attempt I'm interested in seeing what your next attempt looks like. That first picture is absolutely amazing.

    Thanks for the responses. All of these were with an SB-600 + Stofen Diffuser off camera. The different lightings between them comes from the angle and placement of the flash.

    Thanks again for the nice comments.
