Thanks jaharris - they are the most common bugs right now besides the honeybees, and they are easier to photograph because they tend to stay in one spot as long as you move slow.

Great shot saly, how far away were you, about 30cm ? 12 inches in real measurement terms :p

Thanks SquareOne, I'm typically 18 - 20 inches away (typically). The further away I stand and the more I zoom in, better bokeh I get. But all of this also depends on available light, I noticed.
