As you all know by now, I capture and photograph 99% of my little critters in full sunshine, as the Panasonic is not great at photographing shady subjects. However, this one was taken in the shade, and I was reasonably happy with the way it turned out.

Reasonably happy?..... Blimey I'd have been over the moon with such a super macro shot. The detail is stunning, it's pin sharp and that metallic sheen to the wings is truly wonderful. One of these days I'll set up a user award but in the meantime have the Andysnap invisible Oscar...Grin

Really excellent. Heavy shadow would obviously cause problems, but worth keeping an eye open for flattish light, slight shade (if you ever get flat light there... ), it gives gorgeous colours and reduces the risk of blown highlights on reflective wings.

Soft or shady light is always best, much better for detail as I'm sure you know. Not that oyu get much shade where you are, I imagine Smile

Mind you, you should have no worries about shady conditions if this is anything to go by. Super capture.
