    Some more bugs from my brothers garden:
    #1 This spider just crawled out of his old jacket. It was hanging there, drying a bit before he would vanish again. Thought it was pretty neat to see his old jacket still hanging above him

    #3 An empty bug case

    Number two is my fave, just great and difficult to get the angle right. The dragon fly nymph slough is great and very alien too. Shame we have just missed them, it would be nice to get the draggon fly emerging as a shot, and they are expecially docile when they do, aparently early in the morning.

    How you get such detail on handheld shots just amazes me. My faves are the first and last.

    Thanks, i myself like #2 a bit more, cause you can look into the old skin and see the sockets of where his legs used to be.
    Canon 350D, Sigma 105mm 2.8 macro, speedlite 430EX with a lumiquest softbox on it
    yeah, would love to see that once in my life. And yeah, for all i know they emerge in the morning and cant fly away immidiatly, since they have to fill their wings with blood and have to dry. Think they are the best models ever during that.........but after that, phew
    And thanks for the comment
    Thank you. Just have to practice alot on keeping your body (yeah body, not only the hands) steady. In the begining lots of pictures come out blurry, but after a while the toss/keep ratio gets better. And the flash helps alot too :mrgreen:

    Thanks for the replies you 2 :)
    But you can, i saw your spider pic. That looks pretty good, just need a bigger f-number so more of the spider is in focus :)

    I am pretty sure #5 may be a male of the same species at the one who shed its skin. If not its probably still a male

    It could be a male, it was rather far from the bigger one, but it still can be the male offcourse.
