Better and better Carol, I spent all day yesterday chasing dragonflies with £1500 worth of equipment and failed to get anything approaching this good. Grin

A top set Carol, its v2 for me too, the detail and clarity is exceptional. V1 and v3 are real in your face close ups and as good as anything the Big O can produce given you are working with equipment a fraction of the price of his!
