Nice! How do you get these guys to hold still for their photo?

Glad you like the photos. These guys are a real challenge for me. With the 60mm lens that I have, I have to get inside 8" to get these close up shots. It makes things difficult, but the key is to move very slowly and take your time approaching. This shot took 15 to 20 minutes to get into position for as I had to crawl over river rock to get to his perch. While I do enjoy the challenge, I wish I was able to afford a longer macro lens so I could have a little more working room. I'm sure it would mean fewer missed shots.
