Another amazing set Mark, especially like the fly shot.

How close are you when you are taking the shots, as most of my subjects seem to be a bit camera shy and move off before I can get close enough even with macro lenses!

Thanks Tony. The dcr150 lens focusses constantly around 8 inches from the subject. If the insects wont let you approach close enough, try shooting either early in the morning or on a cool both times insects are more sluggish and will tolerate a close approach. The Damselfly pics I posted the other day were taken in dull cool conditions and this allowed me to get way closer than I would be able to normally when theyre more active.
