    these flies are next to impossible to take pictures of, so I am happy with this one although composition is not that great

    Ahas,

    thank you, yes I have a decent camera, the lense is more important as you could easily have a more affordable body and take as good pictures.

    Yeah, crab spiders are all over the place!

    Pato,

    Thanks for the comments! Far from pro yet though, but I am happy with my improvements so far.

    South America, hummm... cannot wait to be there!

    Yes, I agree that field pictures is much more fun, the excitement of finding the bug and to get a chance to get a good shot of it.

    Take care

    Excellent shots again Martin... the pics keep getting better as Pato pointed out! Nice work.

    Perhaps you can teach me some lighting techniques (external flash, diffused light) as I would like to get better lighting with my shots.
