2:1 handheld the Sony + Venus 60mm.
I got 4 shots off before he flew. I needed at least two more :(
But it was nice enough that he stayed on my finger that long :)

Thanks Lester. Tell you what I've figured out. As you know I love all genres of photography and dabble in a few of them.
Living macrophotography is the hardest. BIF would appear to be and the BIF'ers will tell ya it is....I say it is equipement based.
Landscapers will tell you their genre is the hardest, and so on. In macro I thought for a long time the super detailed stacks
were the challenge-again not with the right equipement; but macro'ing the living is the hardest for me....and for physical reasons.
It too requires some equipement but so many have shown that with ingenuity (think reverse lenses) money isn't the object. For
me getting into the funky positions (human pretzel) and waiting out the insect is many times the struggle and with weather always
making it even more a challenge.
All this to say my hat is off to the macro greats who have always been keen to offer suggestions to me for their fantastic and often
simply amazing work.

Love that 2nd shot MM.
I suspect all photographers think their genre is the hardest often for completely different reasons, but we know live macro shooting takes that crown ;-)a

I follow what you're saying MM, and I shoot macro because it is difficult. But never lose sight of the simple fact that the only thing that matters is the final image. What you did to get from an idea in your head to a photo that you can post to your gallery is really irrelevant. Sure it matters to you, and it might matter to other people who shoot macro (or who want to get into it), but to the casual viewer your photos have to stand on their own.
