Hey Tim,
These are great!
the long tailed skipper looks like he better be careful... if he should flick that tongue out and it comes back too fast he'll knock himself out!
The Bee Fly, is like something you'd see on a cartoon, never seen one of these before.
The Robber Fly, detail is outstanding!

Lining up behind the other with my compliments! #5 being my favourite, looks like the leading character in some upcoming Disney movie.

Wow, some amazing macros there.

I kick myself every time I see shots like these from the Lester Dine/Vivitar Series 1/Kiron.
I really should have picked one up when they were cheap a few years back.
If anyone wants to sell one cheap....

Thanks all for looking and all the kind words!

Dal, on this trip I left the ringflash balanced on both sides, this seems to be my preferred setting thus far.

Penolta, thanks, I think I have some shots of other species within Mallophorina, so you are probably right.

GW, watch for those bee flies in spring around native flowering plants, that seems to be when I spot the majority of them.

Nadnerb, It is certainly a lens worth searching for. Keep looking, I picked my backup up online for under $200 a couple of months ago now, so you can still find the occasional bargain.

Thank you again,
Tim

Those in-flight shots are great, #5 is my favorite.

A fantastic series, Tim. I like them all, but if forced to choose, I'd go for the skimmer or the dining spider.
