Those are some nice shots!

I assume a macro lens?

Thanks for  the compliment! And actually no - I'm shooting a standard 18-55mm that came with the camera body. I think I'd like to get a 60 mm macro at some point, but I'm still trying to decide what would work best for the type of things I like to shoot.

ETA: Scratch that - the Pondhawk, Argiope, and Black Swallowtail were all shot with my 70-300mm if you can believe it. The spider was waaaay back in some brush and marsh area that I didn't think I should trample through and the swallowtail and Pondhawk were a bit too jittery to get close to (although, the Pondhawk did land on my leg for a bit). The other dragonfly - the one I've not yet IDed, let me pretty much set the lens on him (her?), so that one was shot with the 18-55mm. Almost all the other butterflies and dragonflies I've shot have been done with the 18-55mm.

we IDists rule in design for the flagellum and cilium largely because they do look designed.  Bilbo
