Hi All

Last shot of the night as my battery was finally dying after three days of good use.

Saw this wasp/fly type thing ( If anyone knows what it is please let me know) and couldnt resist, it really stood out with its vibrant colours.

Hope you enjoy these pics half as much as I enjoy taking them

Regards

Goth

Hi Goth,
It's a syrphid fly, or hover fly they're harmless (no sting) There's a few macros I shot of them in this thread. ... Jack

i like the fly one
you did real well on that one
the dragonfly is nice, a bit more depth of field, a smaller f stop, would be nice
although it isnt always possible
the duck looks a bit "flat" mabe play with the curves a bit
of course that could be my monitir too

the best way to get good wildlife shots is to go out and keep taking them
