Thanks Roger, first time I have seen one catch a meal. It barely had to move 3" along the grass stalk it was perched on and I thought I had spooked it until I saw the prize it had won in it's mandibles.
Nice work Ryan and great details.
Thanks Mike! :)

Very nice Ryan. Always wondered what those bugs ate! Do you use a ring flash for your macro?

Cheers Taboo, lots of times I use a twin flash but for these it was just natural light without flash.

Thanks Kayak, I'm pretty sure the hopeless giving hope to others is one of those signs of the apocalypse we are told to look out for... ;)

Great macros, excellent sharpness great background and light. Just a question, for the two "head shots" did you do some stacking?

Thanks All! Your comments are most appreciated.

Cheers, the first head shot was a 2 stack just to get some of the legs in the focal plane but the other is only a single shot.
