Hello Roland,
not easy to catch these flyers in the air but you managed well.
Pity about the busy surroundings, a cleaner BG had make the insect stand out better but that nature,
just to accept.
The insect is pretty sharp and the short shutter speed you get wings almost frozen.
Well done.

Hello Peter,
you captured the blue Demoiselle male very well.
The compostion are great, a classic with the diagonal.
The sharpness of the insect could be better if you used a macro-lens, not easy with a long zoom.
But the DOF is very good, the subject stand out nicely from BG.
Fine nice colours too.
Well done, my friend.

Hi Bill,
nice to see you back from your stroke.
A fine close-up shot with decent sharpness on the head and feet, the shallow DOF I think deepens of the extra lens and converter.
The colours are nice and natural and ) also like the POV and composition.
About stacking: I have done a lots of stacking last years, one of the best progz is Helicon Focus,
if you have a newer version of PS, Ps6 or PS CC , its easy to do stacking.
An example,
www.ellstrom.se/bumblebee.jpg
More than 20 image, stacked in Helicon Focus.
Pity the insect move the rear left leg during the exposures.
Well done.

Hello Nigel,
a very fine BF. the tern standout well against the blurry BG.
Maybe a smaller apetertur to get the front wing in better focus, maybe you where close.
Fine WB and nice nautal colours.

I agree what you wrote about TN and posting, during the 11 years nothing have happend here about
picture size, I suppose nothing will happend the next 11 either.

Gert
