Absolutely fab shots. Love the moth shots, looks like he is wearing a fur stole. No.3 is my fave as it is so delicate.

You and your bugs. I think all of us have had our fair share of butt shots; they just donít cooperate some times. Oh by the way, excellent shots.

Great shots, Saly. I think the focus has fallen a little ahead of the damselfly's body, on the tip area of its middle leg. Had it been centered on the body, the effect would have been more pronounced.

Thanks jj!

Raghu, yes I didn't have time to adjust the aperture before he flew away. I didn't get to play around with the DOF....
