Flies Having a Little Chat photographer John Billingham
(What do flies talk about ?) This was taken with a digital camera on a slide bar, the flies obliging by holding VERY still!
(Dennis Hanser)
Hornworm photographer Dennis Hanser
A tomato hornworm that has been parasitized by a wasp. The larvae have lived inside the hornworm until ready to pupate and have just emerged enmasse and spun their pupal cases. Shortly, they all hatched into winged wasps and left the host hornworm to die a slow death. Photographed on a tomato plant from my garden with a minolta 100 mm bellows lens and two small flash units. Sequential shots were taken for the left and right images.

Fruitfly's Head photographer William Carter, Ph.D.
This is the top of a fruit fly's head shot through a microscope. I used a Canon XL, which has a much smaller imaging area than the 35mm camera for which the microscope's optics were designed for... So at 4x, it looks like I was shooting at a higher power.
