These are just awesome - the clarity of detail is fantastic. Are these just lit by on camera flash - you seem to have some kind of diffuser reflected in the spiders' eyes? Was this with the lens reversed directly onto the camera or did you need any kind of extension tube type devices to get the magnification?

Simply wonderful, Mark! I really enjoyed looking at these. Like Giles, I'm interested in your set-up. BTW, did you use a tripod, or did the use of the flash allow for hand held shooting? Thanks!

Yes pop-up flash and a homemade diffuser (Simple plastic was used)
And yes the lens was mounted only with br-2A adapter
the magnification is about 2,5:1

I use the pop-up flash for these with shutterspeeds between 1/125 and 1/500s Never use tripod with my macro shots. Only knees and elbows. ;)

BTW - the fly in #1 is definitely not a Dolichopodidae (referring to your DPR post :smile: ). I will try to find out and let you know.
