Pentax K-5 II s I like all these. Your diffuser seems to
be perfect for this type of macro shot.

Ooh cracking shots - I particularly like the side view of the Robber fly with prey. Beautifully sharp and with uncluttered backgrounds. Nicely done!

These are superb. If the K-5IIs is capable of this sort of quality then I think I may just have to buy one, mind you I think there's a large element of photographic skill here too.

Exceptional shots, great demo of the capabilities of the camera but much more so the photographer.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

Superb shots, as a macro shooter I was interested to see how the K-5 IIs would handle the repeating patterns of compound eyes and you have shown that not to be a concern. Thanks for posting.
