Wonderful shots there Keith...
Were these taken in standard macro/super macro- or was an additional lens attached..?

Most all were taken in standard macro mode with a + 1 achromat lens attached and shooting at full zoom. I prefer standard macro mode so if I want, I can still use some flash fill and it doesn't flash in super macro..... Thanks very much!!!!!!!

Keith - Very nice job on the 'flies! Great color and composition, and excellent sharpness on nearly all of them (cherokee clubtail looks just a little soft - was this a close crop?)

Damselfly species i will have to look up later, but here are your dragonfly species: Photo #5 is a female Widow Skimmer. #6 is an Ashy Clubtail. #7 is a Spangled Skimmer. And #9 is a Slaty Skimmer.

Mole: Thanks for the identification of the flies,,, I have got to get me one of the books you had on display so I can identify. The Cherokee is a slight crop, but mostly me shaking while we were stand in the creek. Thanks for taking a look,,, much appreciated !!
