Yes
This photography takes a long time but is worth it (if you have the time and patience, you need at least an hour ideally two)
I thought that the first two were of a Cyclops but it might be something similar

Cyclops from the pond. The real size is 2.35 mm, magnification is 3.78

(that is including the egg cases)

You are welcome

Very interesting, what is your setup?
Here is a photo of what I used for the phantom midge

IMG_6802Water by davholla2002, on Flickr

It is two photo frames from a shop called the range, I used a leaf as the background.

The cyclops was in water in a water plastic lid. I mixed a little bit of wall paper paste in to slow it down.
According to this book it does not harm it.
