    Thanks, for these I was using a Canon 580 EX flash. Either on or off camera with a home made diffuser. I have just upgraded to a Canon twin lite MR 24 flash but have not used it yet. I need an adapter for my Canon 180mm lens and there are done in the country

    Thanks. I had that lens before I got the Canon 180mm Macro lens. The 100mm is a great lens and I sometimes wish I had not sold it. I think it was a little sharper. Looking forward to seeing your Preying Mantis image. I love them, especially feeding fly's to them

    Thanks. It took quite a while to get the flight shots. I had to train the Tortes beetle to walk up to the edge of a piece of flax and then fly off. Then I had to try and take the image. All worth it

    Oh and it's Chris (Mr), I just set Facebook up as a family account to confuse everyone

    Cheers

    Cool shots. Too scared to go wander the back yard now after seeing some of those though Like how you've captured them doing stuff or preparing to move.

    Thanks, its takes quite a bit of time to find them doing interesting stuff It helps that I have a 4 year old daughter who loves bugs / insects and helps me find most of them
