Quite an amazing set!

I continue to be unable to imagine taking macro bug photos at night in the rain forest!! If you are eaten by a jaguar or something one night, please have one of your friends let the forum know!!!

Great set Kurt, I really like the two bees. Shame you woke them up though!

That beetle and caterpillars is also great. Nice find there.

Most interesting photos as always, Kurt!

The lighting of the fibres on that planthopper is just excellent!
