Hey Vida,
You get some really great DOF at f8 with that lens! The eye detail and pollen kernals?.....are fantastic! You really know how to make the most of that lens which isn't easy to say the least!

I've so missed your image Vida! So glad to see you're back for bug season. Outstanding colors and details here. The two for one action is a real bonus. You amaze me with that lens!

Roman, Paul, Allen, Ken and Jules, thank you all for the lovely comments.:) Jules, I wish it was bug season here in SA.:) We are in the middle of a very cold winter now and I'm finding it increasingly hard to find something to shoot. I will have to go looking in my archives for something to post or otherwise you are going to see a lot of shots of ordinary flies, shot from every possible angle.;):D
