The most impressive of portraits are those that show subjects in their native environment. This applies to people as well as insects.
Recently I talked to a photographer who was interested in capturing insects and bugs in natural light. As I had a flash on my camera it was hard to make the case that natural light is what I prefer.
When an animal poses we seldom if ever have the choice of light, the animal makes the choice.
Flash gives me smaller fstops, less worry about shake etc., but whenever I can shoot without it I do. Close up even a very small fstop gives only a short depth of field.
