Wasp wolf and wasp spider

Find bellow some of my first shots with EF 100mm f/2,8 USM Macro lens, a great toy to play with.
Beewolf (Philanthus):

Wasp spider (Argiope bruennichi):

All shot with 430 EX II flash and Matin M-7221 diffuser ; for the spider shots I added the reversed 50mm f/1,8 on top; in this case DOF is very small even at low aperture ( f/8, f/11) and working distance is very small ( 10-20mm).

Feel free to comment and add suggestion, this will help me a lot.
Light is my friend, time is my enemy.
