You can see the Robberfly's proboscis right inside the little Bee. You can also see bubbles inside the little Bee's abdomen!

Looking at this one and your other, both appear to be red spider mites but then again I am no bug expert. Great shots of the critter and use of gear. :D Thanks Ken. The body shape looks different though. I thought maybe that's why this guy was a Tick. He runs around at a blistering pace! Really fun...

I think a compound eye is less accurate. It gives an overall view but with not much detail. Jumping spiders can actually focus with these eyes! They probably have stereoscopic vision with these front eyes. Ideal for hunting! Wim And it appears the eyes are independent of each other like a Chameleon.

Wonderful results! Interesting idea to put a lens on a lens. How does this contraption look? :D Wim Thanks Wim. Here is how it looks. I've got 3 extension tubes on, then the Sigma 150, then the 50 reversed up front. The whole thing weighs about 5lbs! http://k47.pbase.com/o4/40/510540/1/63787093.l7V...
