Great close up shots.  I like the reflection in the bee's eyes in the second picture (assuming that it was a bee), and you can see every little detail of the grasshopper.

I must say that I'm not overly fussed about the first one, Its amazing in the definition but
Its doesn't jump out to me perhaps in the same way the others do..especially the bee. Wow.
I mean you could sell these, infact have you? :] Keep posting Smiley

(i was just overjoyed that little bugger sat still long enough for a photo... lol... another wing'ed conquest...)

they are on my deviant art account as prints.  i've only ever sold to myself in the form of calendars and prints at walmart...

this one was hard to capture correctly--not to mention they generally don't just sit and chat for long periods of time...

I agree, amazing close-ups. What camera/lense do you use?

my darkest and sincerest thanks, tang...

johnny, i use a sony cybershot with a macro lense... sometimes some filters... (for glare, etc.) for general photos... any self portraits are taken with my small, crappy 1.7 megapxl minolta.

I wouldn't know if 1.7megapixels is bad or good! I know nothing about this digital malarkey haha. Strictly analogue with me.
They're still great photos though. Love them! Where abouts do you live?
