Super shots Brian and great to see them.

You did much better than me, I have only managed a couple of not so good shots as they are very skittish. Had a few emerge from the lawn on Sunday.

Thanks Linda.

Awesome, how did you keep your camera on same frame when you take those pictures on hand?

I'm holding the plant in my left hand and resting the lens on that hand. This gives a pretty stable platform to keep the FOV constant and allow fine focusing by moving the camera. It also allows you to manipulate the foliage the bug is on.

Very interesting, in my case, the insect jumped or moved a little bit when the flash fire.

Yes some flies can be rather flash sensitive but bees and hoverflies don't seem to be bothered.
