Just out of curiosity, what type of lens is everyone using for these shots. I got myself the canon 100mm Macro. But I don't think it's capable of these types of shots!

I think it is capable, but also depends on sensor size and other gadgets, like extention rings/flashes etc, I know it's capable of much more than I force it to do, but I only have an on-camera flash with diffuser :roll:

PotatoEYE: It's a Pine Weevil ( Hylobius Abietis ),

All my pictures were taken by Tamron 90mm Macro with a Raynox DSC 250 ($60 ebay).
