Some atmospheric lighting.

I must do something with chalcid wasps. they have such interesting morphology. I have boxes of pinned (not museum-set) ones in this room. Decades ago I had to identify them from samples.

That's quite severe noise around the wasp.

Yeah, ISO1600 I only got one shot before it departed.

I've not done much macro recently, was trying to get more "background" rather than have a black bg. Did some experiments with diffusion materials today and am making a new flash bracket but still not entirely happy with the diffusion. Need to get it sorted before the Wet Season here when more bugs are about.

Don't you use NR software?

Definitely, although there is still a lot left.

Even in sunlight and with metered flash, at ISO 400, I had to use Moderate level to remove the noise (similar to your remaining noise level) from this image:
