These shots are great. I was at a photography seminar not to long ago and the speaker said that he catches insects in a jar and puts them in the freezer for 15 minutes to stun them and then stages them in front of his camera. He gets his shots without them moving and flying away and then they come out of their coma and fly off.

Well, my technic is a bit different. I go for a hike, my cameras allways with me, and slowly get closer to the insects. If one escapes, I go for the next one. And a lot of them are very cooperative. Some of them often come back to the same place, some are just resting, some eating, some laying eggs or busy doing something else. After a while you get to know their habbits.
