Lovely captures- like the light.
Background is a bit busy in some of them.

Thanks Brian for the feedback.
Yes your right, some of the backgrounds are a bit busy and a little distracting.
I will have to consider that the next time I take my camera out :D

Im pretty happy with this series though, considering im still very much a beginner and still learning the ins and outs of my camera and the new lens...
Cant wait to go out insect hunting again mate.

Deefah.

Nicely done Deefah! I'd be happy with those, especially given that its natural light.

Cheers,
Stephen

Pretty amazing, given they were taken with a DC.

2nd shot is probably my favorite. I like the side shots of these amazing insects. Nice work!

This is a fabulous set of pics.

I never worry too much about busy backgrounds because that happens when shooting them in their natural environment and has to be expected sometimes.
