  1. Great pix Randy [sadly couldn't get any EXIF]...look at that orange bug, it knows exactly where to achieve a camouflaged landing. I wonder if bugs are ever colour blind ?? Presumably they get eaten very quickly !!

  2. thx charlie
    not sure whether NC or smugmug strips the exif

    anyway most of these are around f8 w/ iso 400, no flash today...
    i try for max dof on macro shots
    the lens is a sigma 150 2.8 macro, an amazing lens
