You will find different species at different parts of the day.  They will be a lot more active as the heat goes up but some will wait out the heat of the day.

Of course, here on the coast, as the heat comes in so does the wind.  I don't even try to get to 1:1 outdoors and rely on cropping to get 'closer'

So, how much are you cropping? How close are you getting to the insects on order to get good frame filling shots after cropping ofcourse?
