Thank you all!

stevetracey: I'm almost always in P mode, here I set to ISO 100. Typically, I use Spot Focus mode but here I changed to 1-Area Focus to try to get a wider focus area. I also used Center-weighted metering. My PICT ADJ is always set to: Sharpness +1, Contrast 0, Saturation 0, Noise Reduction -1. Next time, I'm going to try S mode and crank up and shutter speed even more to try to freeze his wings.

Mark, I'm glad to hear that someone of your experience also has trouble with these! It's not easy!

Very very nice....this macro shooting is very interesting. We have such strange bugs here I need to get a macro lens soon.
