Sometimes when I'm shooting a lethargic subject it will wake up and start going about it's normal routine. That's what happened while photographing this Saw Fly. The tricky part is tracking a moving subject when the frame at 4x is only 5.7mm wide by 3.7mm high.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 4x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, +1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Very fine work John.

This is the famous Gendarme - Pyrrhocoris apterus. Not a very offensive creature, they like limes. mallows and hollyhocks, to name but a few, and spend their entire life cycle in and around the plant/tree. They will appear in great numbers in spring and then again when the young are born, which is happening right now. Very photogenic and a very interesting insect.

This has already been answered but we have a similar marked and coloured but more rounder that one finds associated with dead animals, literally by the hundreds. Where they live before then I have no idea.

This one was another rescued from the firewood in the lounge room.
It was late at night so I put it on the stainless steel bench where it turned upside down. Then I uprighted it but it took off
The green one above is similar looking.
Not the best I wasn't setup for such and just got an LED light I have for my cordless drill batteries and snapped the best I could

The important thing is you did get photos of both sides.
Very well done!, :)

Someone will come along and use them to possibly put the pieces together.

I think this is a 4th instar southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula. I'm not very good at all the instars but those three white dots along the nape of the dorsal view look like it. :)

I found an ichnuemon wasp on our fennel in the garden yesterday. We don't see a lot of ichnuemons each summer as we don't have too many of the right plants for them, so it was a pleasure to get a decent photo of one. This is a Gasteruption species, perhaps jaculator. They're quite small, maybe an inch in length, and nearly impossible to identify when they're flying - they're like fragile invisible ripples of shadow. That's not a sting, by the way - that's the ovipositor which they'll drill down into wood or galls in search of someone else's eggs to lay their own on. It's a cut-throat business!

I Google that and looks very much same, just differing in colour.

I honestly don't know how you'd photograph these restless creatures, but then it was in a distressed state.

Wow, very clearly depicted, and artistic too. That bit of red on the abdomen is pretty.

I used to wonder why I never saw ichneumon wasps, but then realized they are mostly smaller than one would expect, and can be inconspicuous. After that I saw lots of them.

The way they make their living sounds gruesome, but that's nature, and they do help keep nuisance bugs under control.
