Would using flash be the only way to eliminate the hot spot where this Crane Fly's legs join the body? Flash with diffuser?

Edit: Canon Rebel, 18-55 lens with 4x closeup filter. Doing this post with iPhone so I can't give the speed and f stop. ISO was on 800 if I remember correctly.

Heya,

Correct. Or multi-exposure. Guess which one is easier! ;)

Flash + Diffuser is a great way to go though. It's how you get soft, even light. The bigger the diffuser, the better (in my opinion). I like to use a big 12" diffuser for mine. More light, more coverage, less hot spots and less dark shadow spots. Just nice even well lit light that reflects even off the surroundings and just lights them up.

Example of a 12" diffuser and flash:
