This photography takes a long time but is worth it (if you have the time and patience, you need at least an hour ideally two)
I thought that the first two were of a Cyclops but it might be something similar

Cyclops from the pond. The real size is 2.35 mm, magnification is 3.78

(that is including the egg cases)

Interesting set. I don't know how you photograph such small things in the water but I like it.

For something that looks best from above like the cyclops it is in a small plastic container with a little bit of wall paper paste in to slow it down.
According to this book it does not harm it.

For the phantom midge I used this

It is two photo frames from a shop called the range, I used a leaf as the background. If I had found a beetle or dragonfly larva I would have tried both set ups.

If I had a lot more time I would do this a lot more, it just takes 30 minutes or so to set it up.
