Beautifully captured! I've been eyeballing that 90mm for quite some time now.

But how do you get the bugs to stand still?? I swear that the bugs in my garden hear me press the shutter and fly off or jump out of the way.
Great pix though

Stand still ? I still don't know ....
Some people capture and put them in the freezer and then photograph them under studio conditions ( Not for me )

Just find a spot with a lot of insects , stand still long enough and you become part of the scenery , then when you want a photo , move slowly ...
