revenant, my flash setup looks like the below:



I just attach a white card to the top of the flash head using velcro, and the card is inclined at 45 degrees to the flash head. When taking the macros, sometimes I will detach the flash from the bracket so that I can position it at more desirable places, esp when the area is constraint.

wee kai, you using any close up filters? Can't imagine you being so close to the insects and not frightening them off....or is it the 10x zoom of c700?

confession time: the ant pic is cropped, but the rest of the pics here are uncropped. Yup I was using close-up +4 filter, and that coupled with the 380mm focal length of the c700uz could get me such magnifications.

In fact, the insects were very proned to being scared off by my proximity, it takes some time to learn how to approach them tactically, and where to position oneself, and what is the threshold closest distance I can approach them without scaring them off.
