    Thanks for the comments! I don't have any real good tips. I just stopped down some so that I'd have a little DOF to work with. My best shots were the ones where the butterfly and the flower didn't overlap. If I go again, I think I'll make more of an effort to compose all of my shots that way. It also made it easier that the butterflies weren't too skittish even though they were still active.

    This yellowjacket flew into a light fixture. I took him outside and set him on the deck. He was stunned (and dusty!) for about five minutes, allowing me to snap a few shots. Then he gave himself a little bath and took off.

    I like that first one. What kind of set up are you using?

    Nice Adam! No kidding about the DOF being razor thin. Did you have to roll around on the ground to get this one?

    Nah, I actually set him on a small table on the deck.

    Man!! That thing is creepy. I'll stand my ground any day with a snake but you could run me to China with a spider. I found a Black Widow one day and coerced her into a clear sandwich bag, put her in the fridge for a bit, set up my tripod and scenery and got her out to thaw with tweezers. She was very co-operative after being in the cold and couldn't move. You could see the "frosting" on her body in the shot I took. Unfortunately the light source I was using started thawing her out and she begin to come back to life at which point she was dispatched.

    Superb shots, Prospero. I wouldn't get that close to a spider again.

    Thanks ColColt.
    Nice technique for taking pictures of a black widow.
    This spider was totally harmless; for as far as I know all spiders in the Netherlands are. So, I could get as close as I wanted. The only difficulty was that the spider web was continuesly moving because of the wind.
