Loved the honeydew on the aphids in the first shot.

The spider eye reveals remarkably soft edges on the illumination.

Have you shown us your lighting setup somewhere? If not, would you be willing to do that?

The nymphs can be a quiz for school kids!
I noticed the unusually nice eye reflections too - diffuser's working well Smile

Thank you, grgh, Mike, Lou, Rik and Chris for the kind comments. Much appreciated Smile

The nymphs in #1 are apparently Psyllids (planthopper). Was fascinating to watch those bubble butts Very Happy


Rik - I've learnt so much from the open sharing of knowledge, including this awesome forum. Always glad to pay it forward (the only way to be thankful) Smile

Here's the basic layout...the first stage to "diffuse and spread" light and the second "shield/concave diffuser" to catch the light to direct it around the subject. The ideal subject location would be in between the virtual "dome"

Two stage diffuser by Hayath, on Flickr

Chris - Pretty happy with the way this is working out, it goes through some tuning from time-to-time

Thanks much, Walter.
The forum and the open sharing of knowledge has helped me (and countless others) immensely. Pleasure's all mine sharing the setup inspired by many big-hearted photographers Smile
