    #2 is my favourite, it's a nice composition and well captured.

    #1 cracks me up, if you put a thick black line around it, it would look like a comic. :)

    Great!

    One thing.... How do you get so close without having them fly/jump/crawl away?

    Excelent stuff, especiqlly so not comming from dedicated macro kit, the grasshopper has to be my fave but i like the saturation in the hover fly a lot too.

    @kyuss - patients lol, move very slow and hide behind the camera. I was chasing grasshoppers for about 20minutes before i got that to stay still long enough for me to bend down.

    Thanks for all the comments

    Ok, it's killing me! What kind of reverse set up are you using.. I'm starting to get interested in doing this... did you go the cheap, body cap/glue-filter way or expensive way??

    i find it was very cheap but not bootleg lol


    BR2-A reversal ring for nikon = $15
    Sigma (or any 24mm) = ebay $100
    Milk Carton scrap for diffuser = 10minutes

    so $115 and 10minutes for my setup. very cheap in my eyes :)

    anything left out let me know and ill explain it better.
    going out of town today but ill be back thursday
