Just wow dude... seriously... your last set blew me away, these just are in another league, the Little Wood Satyr, the Zebra Swallowtail, the ant, the beetle, just incredible!

Have to agree with Mark, while I have not checked out each and every camera's forum's, I think it would be hard to top these.

Outstanding photos Mole!
All good on every point but, the Wood satyrs, ant and the beetle on the evening primrose are my favorite.

Outstanding work! May I ask what equipment you use (camera, lenses,...)?

Dustin - am humbled by your very kind words...

Mark - you are quite correct that the critique & encouragement here is very helpful! Thanks also for your kind words...

Tachikoma - Thanks! I am blessed to live where there are many amazing creatures to enjoy and photograph!

GW - Thanks so much!

Tullio - Sorry to take so long to respond - I have been assisting at another park and nowhere near internet this past week. Equipment is Pentax K-M, lenses used in this series are two - the Sigma APO 70-300 "macro", and Sigma 105 macro.

John - It continues to be a great spring. Glad you enjoyed these!

Boy o Boy Mole, Beautiful pic's you got there. Thats all I'm gonna say though as your level of expertise is so far above my level of photography understanding. Your really good Man. Thank you for showing me just what Can be accomplished though. I gotta go practice some/alot more.

I feel the same way AZK, even though it is often disheartening seeing photo's like this and then myself struggling to even point the camera in the right direction, it does inspire me to keep practicing.

You're quite welcome Tullio!

Ronny - Thanks so much!

AZK6er - You are too kind! Glad you enjoyed these - I have enjoyed your photos as well. And you are quite right about practice, just noticed that I have taken about 39,000 photos with the K-M since it was new last spring...

Tachikoma - And you have posted some amazing, inspiring phots here too!
