Hey i am an amatuer photographer but i just love insect macro photography, could anybody point me towards a good macro book, now i am not looking for a book which teaches you about macro photography because i beleive all that information is on the Web, i just want to marvell at some stunning insect macro shots, of course it's not to say it mustnt contain a single word of macro photography, a simple word of advice on how they acheived the affect could be good, but i certainly dont want paragraph after paragraph of instructions and small images thanks for any help

How about this?
Should show you all the macro photos on the site (plus it's free)

Give Dalentech's blog a look - a great source of info and pics and somewhere in there he mentions that he's had a book published with insect pics
I did have a look at the macros on this site but it is flooded with macro shots that im not looking for, i want a book that focuses on insects but the shots in the macro filter on this site has things such as flowers and jewellry and also a few things which arent macro at all. The advantage of buying a book is that you can (most of the time) rely on all the shots being of a good standard and can (hopefully) find one which focuses on what i want.
Dalentech's blog contains exactly the type of images that i would love to see in a book and is full of nice tips and information, wouldnt mind it was an array of insects either
I first got into photography through my love of insects. They were my favourite photo subjects.
Whilst not JUST about insects, this is a very good book (I was asked to review it for a magazine some years ago and liked it so much, I even bought it )
Hope it helps
I'll second Barry's recomendation. It's one of the best books on the subject.
Another good one is THIS ONE
I'll second John Shaw's book, it's a complete guide.
Problem being im looking for more of a display of skill rather than a lesson :/ this is the problem, most books are designed to teach people how to do it, but i am skilled enough in the internet to find out those sorts of information, however would love an album!!
