I believe this is a Lady Bug. It's head is a lot bigger than the traditional Lady Bug, however. Anyone know?

Sounds good! I actually have the very basic Canon Rebel XS which is a great beginner DSLR. I went all out on the lens with the new 100mm L Image Stabilized lens. When I am lazy, I simply use the built in flash and manual focus. When I am not lazy, I attach my 430ex flash to a Wimberley flash bracket. The bracket is great in that it allows you to position the flash in multiple different angles. I tell you one thing, there is nothing quite like macro photography. I can't even describe the feeling. Very rewarding.
Thanks Gary! We've got some huge updates that we'll be releasing really soon. I think you'll really like them. By the way, what's your camera setup? Your photos are incredible.
Thanks Yasser, the site is great too.
Wow, another amazing photo. Definitely a lady bug. Looks like Hippodamia convergens. Check this out: http://bugguide.net/node/view/402983
