    From a distance I never saw the diversity of colors some bugs have. Once up close and personal with a reversed lens you can see the beauty of these insects.

  2. For someone who works with insects on a daily basis that's nothing special, but the tiny fly in that last pic is spectacular by all means.

    Nice captures.

    Cheers
     
  3. How right you are about this aspect of insects. Your reversed lens work really is excellent and brings this beauty to so many NC members who would not necessarily know this.

    I could not agree more.

  4. Awesome!

    Getting this sharp pictures with this magnification is a really an achievement.

    What aperture are you using?

    Spectacular shots. They must be breathing on your lens. The macro world is so colourful if you get close enough.

    between f11 and F16 but most times f16 if light is sufficient. Lighting is done with pop-up flash and homemade diffuser. I wrote some about the reversed lens stuff here:
