He's very good and I like his tip about shooting insects in the early morning (found in the forum posts from the last link). I'm not an early riser and recently I've been getting my best butterfly shots while they have been re-fuelling on my wife's butterfly bushes (grown specifically to attract butterflies) and the few flowers left in the garden.

Amazing detail! Another example of how nothing beats "Pixel shift" and a good lens when it comes to subjects that don't move!

The first one has a lot of ugly artifacts but the rest is just stunning. Doing pixel shift in nature is not an easy task indeed.

Without doubts, these are amazing beautiful images. A great achievement for the photographer and his gear.

But I see some artifacts in the first picture. See at 100% around the head of the butterfly, the top right of the eye, the coiled tongue, and the chest.

This is not a critic, but more an observation about how incredible detail you can obtain with PS, and at the same time how sensible it is to the tiniest slip in the process.
