No, all natural light.

I have tried flash in the past, but find it difficult to get consistent natural looking lighting. I've tried on camera, off camera, and multiple off camera, all with a variety of modifiers, but still I've not been happy with the results. I had an adapter made for the Nikon's to position the flash head at the front of the lens to ensure maximum light and consistency, but I'm still not happy with the results. I also purchased a couple of SMDV S50's to try. But as yet I haven't had time to test them out in the field.

More lovely photos!
What aperture are you using?
Are you using focus stacking on any of these?
Thank you!

Generally around f/9 depending on the amount of light. The only focus stack is in the other thread I posted today of the Flying Duck Orchid. It is a 10 image focus stack.

EDIT: Link to other post with the focus stack image

Very impressive indeed.
Was he still able to fly with the damaged rear wing?

Years ago my cat caught a big dragonfly and brought it in the house. Its main wing was bent in the middle about 45 degrees. I tried bending it straight and it was quite easy, like bending plastic. I got it straight with just a slight kink and he flew away perfectly.
