I have run out of superlatives, so I will have to agree with Rick.

Great shots Brian, 4 and 5 remind me of a child eating ice cream. Shot 7 is simply stunning.I refuse to post my own untill it's half as good as these, you've set a high benchmark so it could be a while then. I just love looking through you're shots. Great stuff.


Got stuff ;)

Oh crikey, the anti has been upped with those. They are great. The penultimate one of the hover is so good.

how did you get the fly and the dragonfly? Seems like you have to be so close and then they would be scared off.

Thanks.

Thanks for the comments everyone :)

Canon xtidude.
#1 was with a tamron 90 lens on a 600D - natural light, the rest are with an MPE-65 lens on a 5dmk2 body using a 430Ex flash.
Lots of info on how I do the shots in the link in my signature
