Sorry Brian you _should_ write a book! :)

Looks like a great start, I'll have a full read through when I get home from work...

Great article. Most don't cover how to approach the insects. (I wonder if you could just exclude anything about use of tripods in any book).

You might find this a good place to start enquiring:

In one of their magazines, Outdoor Photography (probably the highest quality publication of the genre), they give a contact e-mail:

Thanks for the comments :)

Apart from not wanting to wite a book (not something I would enjoy), as Harold points out there are some areas I just couldn't cover like tripods etc- I just never use them in a similar way I don't tend to do studio type setups.
The Thread is really just a collection of answers to frequently asked questions with a few thoughts thrown in as well.
