    A few more shots from the last few days. A Varigated Meadowhawk, Greenbottle Fly and a Spider (no idea what species, but it was about 1" in size). Comments and critique greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking! :)

    Hi Tom, thanks for the feedback. Sticking with my usual setup of my D300, Sigma 105, SB800 (diffused). EXIF data should still be embedded in the shots. All handheld. PP involved slight crop to clean up the composition and a little sharpening/levels adjustment.

    The fly was sitting on a cedar fence panel, hence the nice background colour. :) 
  4. Nice series, Nigel!
