Excellent photos Scott, and a great tie to show some very buggy effects. What did you shoot the photos with? Certainly a macro lens of some type. Ron

Ron,

Thanks. I use a Canon Powershot SD750 p&s (circa 2007); despite the cost (under $150) it has a decent macro function. Ott tying light and 2 cheap clamp-ons for illumination.

Regards,
Scott
