Those look pretty good to me, the second (the katydid) is the best in my opinion. I notice that several of the bugs are standing on some kind of wire, maybe from a fence. If you got some kind of special fence that attracts bugs you should be sharing the secret with the rest of us bug paparazzi.

Not bad Roy. At least we will have something to look at when you start posting your normal macros, to see that even the best get ALMOSTS.


Good luck callabrating your gear.

Roy , nice start of the season

imho the 2nd and 3rd are keepers, but that's because
  • there new to me[/*]
  • not yet in my collection[/*]
  • and just good shots.[/*]

taken with the sigma 500dg and the new bounce difffuser.
the wire is just the top of a field fence.
i was surprised to find the katydid. it's body is only 1/4'' long and it's rather fast.
