G'day Carlo

There's something about your images that makes me want to shout [in the nicest possible way like between Aussie-mates...] "you're a cunning bugger > how do you do it?"

I guess that you have a very 'cunningly created techo setup' and the insect is housed within a small container. But all this [to me] pales into insignificance when I ponder the insect's muscles firing up those wings to make it actually fly. Now that is some techo achievement!!

... and the images get 12/10 from me
Regards, Phil

Carlo, those shots are insanely impossible. I wouldn't believe them if I didn't see them.
