Most colourful I've seen of bugs. My favourite is the Broad-headed Sharpshooter Leafhopper. Makes you wonder how they can set up these shots?

Now usually I don't like 'bugs n things' but I found those close ups absolutely fascinating. I may just have found a new hobby interest. Thank you, now going back for a second look.

Astonishing stuff - makes me want to throw my camera out of the window.

Forum Editor, I know how you feel and I'm useless with the simplest camera.

If GANDALF was still on these forums I bet he'd have something to say.

Great makes me wonder what these marvellous creatures 'see', with their multiple and complex eye systems.

Actually this type of photo is relatively easy, especially with any Canon DSLR, but you do need the Canon MP-E 65 mm f/2.8 lens which costs around £780.

I don't have this lens, but with my 100mm macro lens + Ex tubes I take photos of dew drops such as this Dewdrop Refraction Would be far,far easy with MP-E 65mm

Those photos are brilliant and make any I've taken just fit for the delete button.

I've been trying to get the wife to buy me a dedicated macro lens and after seeing those photos I don't think I will mention the subject again.
