Another three superb close up images, Carol, fabulous details especially in the wings, in V1 does the fly seem to be laughing at you.

Another great shot Carol. I particularly like version 2 with him in great detail and the curly golden middle of the flower xxx

Beautiful, and beautifully taken, particularly V1 - pin sharp and isolated against the golden haze of the flowers.

Carol, this is excellent. The lighting is very pleasing on the subject. The problem is usually blown highlights which I still get a lot of the time and you've managed to get it just right.
