thank you very much
The problem Joseph is that there is nothing to explain
D300 and 70/180 macro. Time fast, Burst and manual focus
and observe the behavior of insects to find the best time to do these shots
my english is very bad and I use google translator for long replay
I have done some tutorials (nikonlife) on macro and insects in flight but in Italian
these links if you want

They are indeed excellent. You can get a lot of useful information from
the EXIF tags of these images.


The in-flight shots were taken at 1/1600s and 1/1000s

Exif Viewer for Firefox is a quick and easy way to read
EXIF information.
