    I generally skip over bug shots, but these are in a different class. I especially like Miss Iptera and Miss Asp.

    Amazing detail. My favorite is Miss W. Asp. I'm wondering how you can get so close to a dragonfly or damsel with a reversed lens.

    What can I say that hasn't already been said? These are absolutely outstanding shots. My favorites are the wasp and Diptera but they are all great shots.

    Hi Torben,

    What I always try when I stalk my subjects is to approach them real slow. I make sure that I don't have to do anything with my camera anymore and hide actualy behind it. One eye thrue the viewfinder the other watching my subject. And than real, real slow. If I see that the insect gets uncomfortable I wait and maby back up a little. Letting him getting used to me in its environment. But... most times they still won't stay put the 1st time or 2nd or 3rd. Soo before I have the shot I like believe me I have had some real frustrations. ;) 

    cheers, Mark
