5. Wear shoes during every macro trip.

8. If you are going to unknown area forest, best to go with 3 to 5 person maybe group. not to have chance of getting lost.
9. During evening/Night shoot. Bring a torch light with you always
10. Night shoot, Stay together in group in unknown area.

Q. How to spot inscts?

To spot the right insects you want to shoot is better to study the insects breeding group. Just do a normal lookout walk along and look closing to flowers and plants near you. If you spoted a insects, remember to be tact full before carry out the shoot/capture.

Flying insects you need to be extra careful, they feel of fear near by they will fly away; getting them back is hard to be spoted again.

I wish you all good luck in finding rare insects and share your find.
