    Good stuff. You seem to be getting just the right depth-of-field, something
    I still have trouble with on shots like these. What lens and aperture
    setting are you using?

    Wow - incredible pictures! That's some serious macro - I feel like I'm
    right there with the bugs! :)

    Wow. What superb shots. And reading his site, it's amazing that he gets
    such results with such simple and comparatively low-tech gear: diopters
    and an old Pentax 50mm 1:1.4 reversed. Mostly handheld too. The guy's an
    inspiration.

    No kidding. This guy is a perfect example of how technique, craft and care
    always trump technology. My camera equipment may be worlds beyond what he's
    using, but I've never taken a macro as good as his worst picture. You can
    be damn sure I'll read his page and try a hundred times harder from now on.

    Here's his photo.net pages
    http://www.photo.net/photodb/user?user_id=351402
    I think there might be a few on there that aren't on his main site and
    you might pick up a few more tips from the discussions and comments that
    go with the pictures.
