Pretty tough shooting conditions, but you pulled this one off well. You don't often see such a dark background.:)

Thanks Terry. I know it may not be to everyone's liking, but I thought it was fun.

That's a pretty wild shot there. Looks like you did really well with that lighting!

Eric, It was truly a stroke of luck that it all came together. I'm glad you like it. Thank you very much.

Thank you kindly Dave. As I began in response to Eric, there was a good dose of luck behind it as I was looking in the completely opposite direction. When I turned my head to blow away a mosquito I saw this guy in flight.
