Jeff, You have perfectly captured this Subject. The choice of backgrounds really compliments. awesome set of shots.

The "Exposed Boxers" of the animal world.
The great shots are coming fast and furious on this thread lately. I really like Spork's gypsy moth antennae. (I am a sucker for anything symmetrical.)
Q B@LL shows that even though some people in Florida consider lantanas to be weeds, they are great for attracting butterflies, moths and other insects. Great captures on the moth pics.
BE, I was blown away by the damsel fly pic. Not only do you have fantastic color and detail on the fly itself but the flower it is on is fabulous!
Tyger's spider makes me want to post a few more of my own. I have been seeing the same spider most mornings. The light just starts getting to be good and he reels in his web for the day. You have a very small window of opportunity with that one.
Jeff, those mantis pictures are great! There is something exceedingly alien looking about that particular insect. All of your shots are good advertising for Sony cameras. Which extender are you using for yours?
I am posting a couple more anole pictures because they are everywhere right now. Mating season must be in full swing.

What the Hell.... I might as well just post em now.

scatamousche, Bald Eagle,Thank you very much for your kind words.
The subject is important but the environment is also important to have a nice pic.
Scatamousche> All people that post photos on the web make advertising for the manufacturer of its camera. I'm using a raynox lens (cm3500) for my close-up.
An another one with nice color:
