Flying insect photographs
To study (and photograph) flying insects, most entomologists glue fine hairs to an insect's thorax and then hang the insect in front of a fan. However, Make linked to a website detailing one photographer's home-built setup for taking pictures of flying insects in the field. The site has ten pages describing how the unit was built, and then eight pages of insanely good pictures of flying insects.
