Do you still use the auto setting on your camera for these super close-ups?

Yes , all I'm smart enough to use is the auto setting lol!

Luckily my camera is smarter then I am so it switches to the macro setting when I get close to the objects I photographing - the little flower icon will pop up on my camera screen anyway , which I think is the symbol for macro scratch

Respect. bowwing   I know we practically have the same camera.  But I shake to much, in order to get such great close ups, like you do.  I have to lean on something to steady my self when shooting stuff like this, and still don't get as good pictures in manual mode. rockon

I've been using a small tripod thing to steady the camera which would not work for shots like that, great work James cheers

I tend to brace my elbows on things if I can but luckily I have pretty steady hands , which is a miracle considering my daily coffee intake lol!

I think what helps me the most is using the 2 second delay timer - it gives me just enough time to steady the camera after I press the button .

Never thought I'd see a Vader made out of insects lol hmm.

I definitely haven't paid enough attention to this thread James, you've got a great eye.

Here's a little guy I saw in Fort Mac Alberta a couple weeks ago:

Yeah the benefits of not having to buy my own gear lol that's the L series canon 100mm macro. It's actually pretty affordable as L series lenses come, around $1200 CAD. Still, it's not mine lol.

I haven't seen a mantis in my area in years, feels like I used to see them all the time when I was a kid, but then again lol I'm not playing outside as much as I used to rofl
