My favorite one is the frog, though I find the water turtle interesting - I've been trying to capture some and haven't had much luck (does this sound like an excuse to visit the Botanical Gardensagain?). I like your picture because of what the water does to the shell.

Yeah, thats the one. Sounds a bit Chinese, don't it? Nice samples, post more when the new ones hatch!

Are they taken hand held or with a tripod? The fly seems to have been very cooperative.

errno, what 200 mm were you using??

mine is the sig 70-300APO.

bily, they can be VERY cooperative. a lot of times if you scare them off as you approach they will fly around and come back and roost in the same place.. i'm sure you will be seeing many of them posted as the season changes. these hatch from the water like mosquitoes
