    thank you for the nice comments!

    Tityus, you have a picture of my old set up on page 3, but essentially, I use the Canon 50D, I alternate between 4 macro lenses, the EF-S 60mm (very rarely, but some older shots were made it it), the EF 100mm L, the Sigma 150mm and the MP-E 65mm, also, since last summer, I use the Canon twinflash.

    Take care

    all right, the season has started... finally

    anyhow, barely I should say, it was freezing cold today and there was snow... but nothing would stop Alain and I to go take some shots.

    got this shot of a fly walking on the snow... took me about 15 minutes to get this decent shot, after that I gave up as I had my knees in the snow and I could not feel them anymore!

    and a second one of that same fly

    [​IMG]

    a nice little spider

    [​IMG]

    and got a shoot a few ants, which is rare, the temps kept them decently slow!

    Anyhow, nothing outstanding, but I was just happy to be back on the field!
