What do we say another great set.
Wish I could find as many different subjects, I have to wait till Christmas before I can try some more macro and just hope conditions will be right for the spiders again. Or I have to wait till the next season again

All great but i like the moment you caught with the snail.
Thanks much, I liked how the translucence worked

Great set, love the lighting. Interesting how the wasp removed the legs.

Thank you, Neil!
It was fascinating to watch the expert spider Hunter go about it's work

Heyath,
Wonderful shots. Curious as to what your settings are.
Great job!
Thank you!
Given the horrid noise performance, I stick to ISO 200
Aperture is anywhere between f5.6 to f13 based on distance to subject and magnification. Shutter speed is varied based on the amount of ambient light I want in the frame

Thank you, living in the temperate zones has it's advantages :)
Hope you get your insects back soon


Outstanding images!!! The snail is my favorite.
Thanks much, Phil!
