    Nice pics Danny. What is your flash setup? I have been playing around with my Sigma 105 but not used flash with it. Not insects either, flowers.

              They're all good, but No. 2 is great, Danny. Love the focus, sharpness and the movement of the wings. What's the shutter speed in that one?

                    I love them all & especially how the flash has captured the moving wings in #2.

                      Thats a very nice macro selection but No#2 is very special - thats a magazine shot for sure really well done Danny.

                          Thanks again everyone

                          @sapper - the on-board flash has a wee bit of a4 white printer paper over it to diffuse, and thats it really

                          @catherine the shutter speed on that one was 1/100

                          Thanks again
