Good effort Sally but the focus is quite soft, looking at the EXIF data I would respectfully suggest that you use at least f/16 and use a faster shutter speed to get one completely in focus, hope this may help a little,
Geoff.

Thanks Geoff, very useful information I will definitely try it - guess a tripod would have been a good thing too - interesting - do you use shutter priority or aperture priority? I like to get my bugs on the move - more interesting but it comes with it's problems.

Hi Sally, I tend to use aperture priority but also use manual focus, a tripod can be useful but does sometimes get in the way especially if you are trying to catch the little devils moving through the plants etc,

Geoff.
