He must have been faithfully posing for you for time long enough for the marvellous shots to be taken or else the equipment must be working well for you. Awesome.

Would be grateful if you would tell something about your experience with the Sigma ring flash, e.g. its colour temperature, accuracy with exposure and ease of use. Thanks in anticipation.

Thank you for watching and commenting!
About the flash, just used it for 2 weeks, but it's very simply ease of use. Put the cam to M mode for the wanted aperture and shutter speed and the flash to automatic mode, because it is full TTL. It's great.
These pictures have taken in very strong sunlight. The color temperature is like in the pictures, for my eye is good.
More information I can tell you when I used it a little bit more in the field!

PS: the setup

Frightfully astonishing! What a brute! What horrible thoughts must buzz within his insectile brain...

Earnestly awaiting the above to come. By the way, thanks for the photo of the setup. I think the flash is good judging by the fill-flash effect it created, exposure well capture though the sunlightwas strong as you said. Enjoy more exciting shooting with the gear.
