Beautiful. Are these photographed in the field, Katja, or do you have a setup?

They are all photographed in situ. I've tried to do some studio photography with bugs, but I don't really enjoy it. It's much more fun to stalk them in the field.

Yes, I think I would feel the same way. Your photographs are so impressive and well lit--it just seems like they might be in a studio!

It's because I am using a flash. Almost all my photos before 2012 were taken with natural light, but that meant I was limited to huge bugs like butterflies and dragonflies. When I got a close-up lens last winter, I realized that I had to start using a flash. It's almost impossible to shoot anything below a centimeter without extra light from a flash. I love natural light, but I also love being able to capture itsy-bitsy things.
