Well, it's far better than anything I've done so far and I try to shoot way bigger bugs than this. I think you've got great light and the focus is sharp. I love the gossamer wings. Smile

Cheers Ken, the tips are much appreciated, I've just gone and bought a Manfrotto Mono Pod, so I still need another 2 legs to stand on Smile Will check out how much a shutter release is, hope you're well?

Fine thanks Gaz!......Cable release for a Nikon D300,,£24.99 from SRS Microsystems, a magic company to deal with. I just use a lightweight mini tripod, you can pick them up very cheap,pointless getting a full size singing and dancing job as they tend to get stuck in the bushes!..lol....good luck my friend and keep snapping,practice makes perfect!.................Ken
