Looks like he's got the hump for no grub lol.

Fantastic shots - especially the face shots, they are brilliant.

Thanks, Renee. It's quite common in that park i go to. It's very big too..won't fit into the MPE at 1:1 on crop sensor.

Thanks, Brian. Loving the light from this simple yet effective diffuser. And with just a bit of minor improvement, it doesn't get in the way much at all now!

very even lighting, what I would expect from a ring flash; some people don't like the effect as there is little modeling without shadows but it is great for showing detail.

There's still a bit of shadow esp below the eyes..and some pleasing highlight so i don't think it's flat like the ring flash...and not too much shadow like a bracket and diffused speedlight. Light up more of the bg as well. The way i like it.

Very good this one in orange, the details in red of the compound eyes are amazing.
