Macro photo of ant dragging a spider
If you look closely you can see the ant is dragging a spider.

Macro photo of Ichneumon wasp
This freaky creature is a sort of Ichneumon wasp that lay eggs into other insects. Their larvae live as a parasite of other insects.

  1. Wow, those are amazing! The critters kind of give me the creepy-crawlies, but I love the one where I can see your reflection in the water droplet.The colors are beautiful!

  2. Wonderful macros! Although I don’t enjoy the presence of insects, small or large. But they’re fascinating to look at–just as long as they’re depicted in photos and aren’t crawling on me!

  3. All of them are amazing – what lovely macro pics – thanks for sharing!

    It’s hard to chose between them, but my fave would be the sawfly. It’s so colourful and sharply captured.

  4. wow, amazing shots you got there! Love the one where the ant was dragging the spider. Are those photos cropped or it’s the original sized pics? What lens are you using? I’m using an SP90mm on a Canon 400D, still new to macro, any pointers? 😀

  6. I really like those macro photos. How do you do that? Can you do it with a regular digital? I am starting to take photos. I find it fascinating and yours are superb
