Here are some shots of jumping Dolichopodid flies. These guys are scared by the pre-flash so if you try to take their shots you end up with a bare leaf. Therefore, I focused on the little guys, moved the focus either in or out a little and then aimed above and took the shot with the flash. As you can imagine there are a lot of missed shots, and of the ones in focus, it usually involved only half the fly in the frame. Luckily these guys usually return to the same spot after they have jumped clear so you can keep going until you get one that works. These guys are probably still seeing flashes today
