Thanks for the comments.
I happened to seen it by accident underneath a plant leaf in my garden here in Indonesia. The isect had just hatched, I think, as it sat still for quite a while. i did not know this of course and hendheld the shot as I was sure it would disappear if I ran to fetch a tripod.
I used the K10D with a Tamron 90mm Macro
f/11 and 1/180 with flash. ISO 1600 as it was a bit overcast and darkish.
