LOL Exactly! :lol:

And by the way, the images of Brian and Kurt are also what got me inspired.

That's very cool. Their work is greatness, yours is too. Thanks for sharing.

One of my problems is getting the bug to stay still. I would like to ask if there is a chemical or spray that causes temporary paralysis to all bugs to give me time to take the picture?

Macro has become more than just the picture, it is learning about the subjects, and appreciating the intricacies of nature.

Very true. Whenever I take a picture of a new critter, I do some research about it. I've learned a lot in the past couple of years.

I used to be afraid of bees until I started photographing them. I never knew a fly could be so beautiful until seeing it through a macro lens.
