Is that Amsterdam? It looks like it to me!
snowy those are amazing shots. Can I ask what gear and settings you use please?
snowy I sincerely hope that is not really your garden
snowy those are some seriously big scary beasties!!!
Seriously, some great shots.
For these I used a Canon EOS 550D, Canon EF100mm f/2.8 Macro, Kenko extension tubes, Canon 500D close-up lens, Diffused 580EX II Speedlight.
But just recently I bought an MP-E 65mm Macro Lens and an MT-24EX Twin Light. They have added yet another dimension to my Macro work.
I'm afraid so Olivier, I am not able to venture far from home at the moment...
Thank you and the The Pits for taking an interest.

Are you focus stacking at all or do you have a setup that just gets the shots at the right moment? Thinking about it I'm guessing the compositon and shot angle is the key with your work...side on profiles, opposed to shooting 'down' the subject?
Either way, having such a shallow DOF can be a right pain in the arse with macro work, I'm sure!
snowy ... thanks for sharing
I don't focus stack, I haven't got a decent tripod so I take all my photos hand held with flash. I very rarely photograph dead creatures (which seems to be the norm with focus stacked bugs) as I think photos of critters are more interesting if they are doing something. Even if it is just looking at me as if to say "bugger off you annoying little git! "
