Real impressive shots

Fortunately, hoverflies hover, but still amazing for handheld manual focus. Quite an accomplishment.

I agree with penolta - well done! Manual focus does take practice, and occasional brush-up practice if you don't do it for a while.

Thanks for looking,all...I have to take about 60 shots before I get a keeper and do some sharpening but I enjoy sitting in my chair in the morning sun,coffee and cats at my side and trying out different settings and focusing goal is to get one without having to post process.And thankfully they do have them down to about 8 seconds in one spot until the warp drive shift to another spot in the continum!

Well done ! If you have an M or an A lense you could try CIF too ?
