This is a rediculously amazing macro shot. How on earth did you get so close to it without it flying away??!! I'm curious as to what lens you used and any macro attachments.

@Terry: Hi Terry. I guess it got tired of me following it around so it let me get so close, I used an older CANON 35-80mm lens with a 10x Macro extension that I got from an dia-positive conversion kit (which never really worked)
