Outstanding! :shock:

Not too many years agoshots such as thesewould have been next to impossible without today's affordable equipment. Such a shot as one of these would have required costly custom-designed equipment and would have rated a full page in Life magazine (still would in National Geographic). Well done!

Another great shot - this is the one most photographers would strive for, because the wings are sharp - that is because they have paused between the end of the upstroke and beginning of the downstroke. The slight blurring of the others allows a sense ofmovement and direction,andshows the configuration of the wings during the upstroke (2,3) and downstroke (1,5,4,). Even though these are not consecutive shots, you can arrange them in a composite series (2,3,6,1,5,4) to show a nearly complete wing stroke cycle, missing only the end of the downstroke. Thesecan beuseful both scientifically and aesthetically. Again, well done.
