What can one say but WOW!? "Timing", composition", "sharpness" sounds too futile for this.
Good to hear from you, Tim.

Nice to see you again, and congrats with you publication, and I agree with everyone there are no superlatives that describe this shot good enough.

I'm a relatively new face here and have never seen any of your previous posts but after seeing this shot, I hope I am going to see a lot more.

Fantastic capture!

Lou

Job and life (two separate concepts IMO) have been consuming my available free time of late. I have seen a lot of new avatars in the forums but the same friendly welcoming atmosphere that caused me to choose a Pentax in the first place remains.

My personal bit of news is I had two shots chosen for the Entomology Society of America's annual calendar. Apparently they had over 250 submissions (only 20 or so were mine) so I was pretty psyched to have two images chosen. Not that it pays cash but it was another step towards doing something meaningful with my Pentax. I also managed to pick up another Kiron 105mm macro, this one a Vivitar Series 1 to add to my Lester A Dine and I had a Pentax AF160 ring flash delivered this evening.

Roy contacted me recently and reminded me I had not been on the forum for awhile. I apologize and I will try to do better. This forum was one of the major factors in my adopting photography (and macro in particular) as a hobby and there are days at work when only the thought of a weekend of picture taking gets me through. Even if I am not on as often as I once was, I will endeavor to report in more frequently in the future!

Tim

One of the two shots for the calendar is below:
Incredible shot-I am very interested in the AF 160 ring flash-please post your thoughts. Thanks

Hey Tim!
I've been wondering what the heck happened to you. I thought perhaps you had gone on a "deep undercover assignment" and forgot to come back!
Speaking of come back, what a photo! way to go.

Thanks for the welcome back ya'll! I helped a friend move today so I did not get to play with the ring flash but, before this weekend is done, I intend to give it a good wringing out and post my thoughts. As requested, the other shot that made it into the calendar was this one (which I had probably posted previously, it is a year old now):

Tim

PS: I have been trying to learn a little about what I am photographing, the first shot was Bombylius mexicanus feeding on Calamintha ashei (an endangered Florida mint) and this shot is Exoprosopa fasciata feeding on Liatris/Blazing Star. Despite their different appearance, both insects are bee flies.

Tim - I am another one of those "new faces" eager to see more of your work. That is a wonderful photo - so clear and well-composed, tells the story so well. Thanks for sharing, and congratulations on getting your photos published!
