A very difficult shot, Viv. It's so complicate to focus them while they flyi! I can imagine you very very quiet to get this shot lol. By the way, thanks for your comment on Ana's pic, I read it Wink I'm expecting my real macro lens due to Tuesday Nah! but it's very unlikely I'll find a thingy at 40ºC, only mosquitos at night :D

Great capture. Great detail especially when you consider how fast those things fly.

Very nicely done - they're so difficult to catch like this. I've tried many times (and failed!)...
