Greg,

I used to use a scanner all the time to produce images of flies. What I did to prevent the flies from being mashed was to use a 1/2 to 1-inch thick foam frame that I placed around the flies and then set the background on top of that, being sure that extraneous light didn't get through to contaminate the scan. It worked pretty well.

The photo I've posted here of two whistlers was scanned with my old flat scanner.
