Insects dominate this page and the trick in taking photos like this is to overcome any apprehension that you might have that these creatures have any special interest in you or want to jump on or fly at you. 

To them, with the exception of female mosquitoes and ticks, you are something to be avoided because of your size. Slow deliberate movements work for me and the camera, as inanimate, though moving object, seems to be no threat at all

I have never been stung or bitten or infested with anything (beside ticks and mosquitoes).

The interesting photo of the wasp on the stiff Teasel spines is misleading - it was just a temporary stop for the wasp. It soon flew off.
