Hi Hans,
very nice pics indeed, esp. the close-ups. What lense did you use? A macro-lense?

Thanks for the kudos, Günter! I usually use a 105 mm Sigma macro and an assortment of extension tubes, but occasionally I'll play around with a Hasselblad 60mm f/3.5 Distagon C, which yields about 100 mm focal length when combined with the Pentax K10D. I used that lens and a few extension tubes for the shots of the Drosera madagascariensis as well as the "bamboo spider".
