I think all of them use tubes or extenders

When shooting 1:1 no tubes - how do you get so close to these insects??? Or are they dead and staged? I am trying but not having any success...

Move slowly, try not to block their light if they are sunbathing. Best time to catch them is early morning when they are cold and sluggish or reluctant to move, gives you a little more freedom to practice.

Shot these this morning...

I don't use tubes at all, like said, don't block the light, move slow and accept that 90% of the time the little buggers will either turn their back on you, or fly off:D

Two from last night. Shot at 1:1 and still needed a crop, these buggers are small.

Great job Japers!

Thanks!

I agree with what everyone else has said as far as approach goes. Move in slowly, try not to block the light (if shooting when they’re active), and try to shoot either early morning or later in the evening when they’re just waking up, still sleeping, or settling in for the night.

Oh, and don’t breathe on them if you can help it. They don’t usually care for that. ;)

Buy some of these little guys and get some practise. Once you know and understand how the lens works, you'll have much more success in the field with insects.

These guys are Scale 00 (10mm in height) and you can get them from http://www.gaugemaster​.com (external link) they're really great for practise!

Pretty sure I posted this already :/ but it hasn't turned up in this thread...

Going against the grain here, cheating on Macro...100mm is a great focal length.

In case of emergency...

Mushrooms are lots of fun to shoot with the 100L. I was out hunting them when I saw this guy.

The exif on this shot surprised me - 6 seconds?! These little guys don't move much.

I would say that you have the HTML button clicked under the size box instead of the BB CODE.....
