Shows that you don't really need a dedicated macro lens for spectacular images.

It's all in the nature of the lighting.

yes, totally agree. Lighting is challenging at these magnifications, and the examples were extremely well done. I never use flash myself and prefer natural lighting, but I have to admit that when done right flash can produce extremely nice images (without the risk of motion blur ...).
