Very nice Eric, I stumbled upon your photos while on DPReview, will be returning when I have some more time. Please visit my little corner of PBase when you have some time.
Amazing stuff! Something to look at when I am in class, as long as I have wifi
Thanks for your comments. You know I love you photos, they're fantastic! I hope we'll see more soon.
For some reason, your pictures really cheered me up.
You have great stuff here and I'm a little jealous to be honest.
Eric, I was keeping up with my comments on Pb, I just saw a fraction of your shots and I must admit that some of your shots are excellent in every sense of photography for what I see on my monitor. Too bad I need to move on, but I'll come back to see more of your work.
Keep on posting high caliber work!

Thanks for your very nice note in my Celebrities and Politicians Gallery. Now that I have made a reciprocal visit to your galleries, I see the direct analogues to my celebrity subjects in the insect and animal world you have photographed so expertly. They seem to all have similar personalities.
I love your 2006 macro rig! I am really amazed by the diversity of the bugs you have chronicled. Are all these creepy guys really lurking in my yard? I hope you (and these bugs) live far away on the East Coast!!! (But if you visit the West Coast I would love to host your visit to a Commonwealth Club program.) Your work is scary, but inspiring and beautiful. Keep it up!
I am now a fan of yours, Eric. You've got a lot of great macro photos here. Thanks for sharing it.
In response to Gussy's question, below:
For 99 percent of the bug work, I travelled no further than my own small yard. We have a flower garden, but it's very ordinary and low-maintenance. As for the amount of time, yes, many, many hours. From May to September, weather-permitting, I'm out every day. Last year I concentrated on flies, and this year, bees. After a while you learn to anticipate their movements, and you get better at shooting them. It's fun.
I have a bellows, but don't use it for this stuff--to awkward. I shoot most stuff hand-held, with flash and typically, a 105mm macro lens with extension tubes.
Loved your galleries Eric! Especially like the humour of the Bug macros. Will be visiting again.
On "Lunch of Green Salad", how far were you from the subject and how did you meter the exposure?
Where do you find the bugs!? Must have taken you hours to get nice shots! Do you use bellows?
My name is Ryan Nassau and I currently attend Harvard Law School. I know my boyfriend will enjoy these photos when I show them to him.
Thanks for the great photos and thanks even more for taking the time to provide beginners like me with such valuable advice. I will study your work often.
Eric - your shots are among the very best! I have just linked to your fly portrait post on dpreview.com at
and will definitely link up to many more of your fantastic images and tips.
Luckily I 'stumbled' upon your galleries.
I love macro but am just beginning and have just one lens for it.
Thanks for sharing all the information about your gear and your beautiful photos.
I'll be back exploring your galleries soon.
Great stuff you have here. It was fun to browse. I'll be back!
WOW! You have some terrific macro shots here and I am really speechless!
Great work and I really enjoyed viewing your galleries! I'll sure come back again!
