Cool shots everyone. The neon green bug on page 1 I believe is a green ash borer. Awesome looking bug, but I think he's a devil on eating trees. Correction anyone? Thanx.

Im pretty sure it is a green tiger beetle, I have seen them chasing and eating ants before. They are usually quite skittish but I got lucky with that shot I guess!

Hi Dave,

Just a little suggestion, you may want to emphasize more at the head of the grasshopper (I think) by bringing it to the center or a little bit to the right side of the frame since most of the time the head of the insect is the one that mostly impresses the viewer.  It's just my opinion though.  You may want to take photos of the insect in multiple angles or frame it in different ways.  Most of the time, I just work on "feeling".  I know I've got it somewhat right if I feel good for my picture but just as what you've done, I'll ask everybody's/anybody's opinion regarding it because it will surely help me next time.

That is very good man.  I like it.  Having a good macro lens is nice but it doesn't mean you can't take a good macro.  It may not be as good as a real macro but sure you can take it.  The only hard part is focusing properly.  Here's one of my own, taken with a 55-250mm lens.



another one:


and with an 18-55mm.  While not true macros, they are certainly capable.
