I did a forum search on this and it didn't turn up anything useful. Considering the huge number of really good macro shots in the gallery I thought it might be interesting to find out what kind of equipment people are using to accomplish that?

I have not posted many photos yet, but use a Nikon D40x with Sigma 150mm f 2,8. I also have a Soligor 1,4x extender, an old Nikon 50mm with reversing ring to achieve larger magnifications. Lighting is through an external Nikon flash on a home made bracket. I'm thinking about buying the Tamron 90mm to complement the equipment. And maybe a D90?

Oh, and for quick snaps of dead insects I use a Canon G10 with good results.

Hmm, now it turned up lot of threads on the same subject. My forum searching skills are not very good I assume.

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank
