Just a few snap shots.....subjects were not cooperative...very skittish, and not very approachable even with a 150 + 1.4x (210mm). The low low perch and the wind didn't help either, plus, my 200MYR (65 USD) tripod can't go very low.

All from the same urban park, in one morning.

a dull robber fly with tiny beetle prey

Beautiful set, I'm just starting to experiment with Macro, and sets like these inspire the hell out of me. Thanks for sharing

NIce shots! Makes me glad these don't come in a 40lb version! :) Btw.. I am sort of putting to get a diffuser rig similar to the one you use... can't wait to see how it does! :)

Same here. Waiting for my extension tubes to arrive from Adorama. Hopefully they'll be here Saturday at the latest.

Thanks, PrestonS, Fishkon, Charlie, Joel, EchoingWhisper.

Charlie - you mean the concave diffuser? These were all NL shots with no diffuser nor reflector used :)
