    Shots look amazing, I know nothing about macro shooting. How do you guys find bugs and stuff...just look around patiently? Do you use IS on handheld shots?

    What's most impressive to me if=s the soft colored backgrounds you have in these images. This is what sets them apart from any other macro creature shots I've seen.

    Very nice work.

    EDIT: Also, the flash capturing the little particles in the air is very nice.

    What kind of technique do you use when using the flash for macro? Would it scare bugs such as butterflies?

    So basically your girlfriend is taking the pics while you are claiming them as your own. I like your style, sir :)

    Does the flash scare away skittish bugs, like butterflies, bees, grasshoppers, etc?
