Default 2 Young Lovers,,

with nothing better to do,,, isnt that an old Lyric from a Melloncamp tune these were TINY !!! maybe 1/4" in length individually and LIGHTENING fast, Ive tried to shoot these individually before and they'll get out of frame quicker then my shutter speed will allow ( 1/125 ) they MUST have been pre-occupied with SOMETHING here,,

Great shots - guess they were pre-occupied by their game of wheelbarrow races !!!

Wow, fantastically sharp. What are they "perched" on - looks rather prickly?

its just a leaf,, these are SO small that even your basic leaf looks different I was looking at a ruler just to see approx sizing and I'd say these are closer to 1/8" in length,, TINY little flies
Thanks for commenting !!

Given the size of these bugs then your shots are even more amazing.

thanks again banksy and Vince,,
Vince, I use a Canon 40D with a Sigma 105mm macro lens, a Canon 430ex off camera mounted on a Novoflex flash bracket and the flash is diffused with a Lumiquest softbox, for settings I set my camera to Manual mode at 1/125s @f13 with an ISO 100 thanks again for commenting !!
