Hi Roy,



Nice pics!!! you should watch those provocative bug shots. Put an XXX rating on them... The red ant in the last shot, Was that a fire ant or just a red ant?

It was a big ant BUT... ants are fast-moving so, how in the h did you manage to get these shots!!!!

How many shots did it take? How far away (or should I say close) were you?

this guy was just snooping around and wasn't moving very fast. the camera body was about 12'' away,lens is 8'' long, i was using my macro rig w/off camera flash.
i got lucky w/these as i could brace one elbow. probably took 6-7 shots. for macro and me 50% is miracle. the new vivitar 105mm is an amazing lens for being over 20 years old.

That is quite a bit of equipment to bring out in the field for macro shots.
I still cannot master or should I say re master the art of manual focus for my retirement age eyesight. I have got rid of all my M or A lens already. Now I have to use manual setting for my FA100

Physically and logistically I cannot handle what you have attained with flying color.
