I am impressed by the jumping spider photo. Tice are you a cyborg from the future ?  ;D

I always thought that using this lens is very difficult even for static objects due to the shallow focus. Look at that spider,  such a small depth of field and you managed to take a great photo while the spider is jumping towards the camera with only it's face and a pair of legs in focus ? Great work

Those are some unbelievable shots, congratulations. I'm not sure i would've stepped back if i saw that jumping spider jumping straight at me through the viewfinder.

A good thing in the cold end of autumn are the solitary wasps paralysed by the cold, much friendlier for photos and not organised in dangerous groups. This one was on the wall of my home and I invited for some photos. The background are mature lemons.

this photo is with Canon MP-E @ 2.5x and f/9

What do you guys use to keep these bugs in place?

Those are amazing - Just fantastic!  I have not ventured into the Macro world much but those pictures get me thinking what I could do. Probably take a long time before I can even come close to some of those as they are truly works of art.  Sinister looking creatures when you can see them in such detail.

This one was relatively motionless due to the cold.

Yeah I got that part for your photo, but I doubt it's the same for everyone, as soon as I come close to even a 1:2 ratio with my 100 bugs don't stay in place...

I get the same problem. They fly away as soon as I come near. Only need to be around half a meter before they get away

Getting them to pose for a photo is a trick that I've not mastered.  Early in the morning when its still pretty cool, I sometimes come accross a insect that spent the night on a flower, and I can get close.

Some photographers have some tricks they use, follow a macro forum.
