    The water drops in #5 make that one extra special. You are much braver than I getting that close to the hornet!

    Thanks Dean. It was wet and very early morning so the hornet was pretty languid.

    Brent,
    Another vote for the fly from me, and I agree that the drop puts the image right over the top. Very nice.

    I was wondering about that :)

    They're all very nice.

    I noticed you used flash on all of them. What kind of flash? I'm curious, as I just got my macro lens and I'm looking forward to spring/summer in our gardens. Trying to get a handle on the lens ahead of time.

    Thanks guys. For these I used a simple setup with a speedlight on camera with a diffuser. I recently bought a flash bracket so I can have flash off camera and can't wait to try itout. Here is the setup I used.

    Thanks for the info, BrentC. I wonder if a diffuser quite that large is necessary?
