I am also trying my hand at insects (macro photos) unfortunately not with much success so far. Are you using a tripod, fill flash, etc? Hope to get some guidelines.
You did not see my last upload of the lone Elephant Bull? And please, I am not looking for points, so no points!! I posted it after I read your note of the White-tailed Deer being the largest animal in your area.
