Default Blowing Tiny Bubbles

Now Jimmy.
It is your fault.
You will cost me a lot of money!
Looking at these images I really want to get in to Macro.

If you don't mind me asking, what lens and light have you used for these?


P.S. The pictures are great.

Thanks for commenting here is all the info on equiptment,, shot with a Canon 40D, a Sigma 105mm Macro lens, great piece of glass for the money for light: a Canon 430ex off camera mounted on a Novoflex flash bracket then diffused with a Lumiquest softbox,, thats it good luck,, macro is a totally different world and its waiting for you

I'm always amazed at these kinds of bug pictures. How do you get so close, with a relatively short working distance lens, withouth scaring the fly off?

the key is to move very slowly, dont obstruct any sunlight and be patient, this little fella was pretty occupied blowing his bubbles so he wasnt concerned about me being there Thanks for commenting
