I must say that the insects I photograph do not sit still as well as his.

These are truly amazing shots.

Sage, I post from my ipad without problems. Was yours giving you difficulty or were the single line posts for emphasis?

No, turttle, not for emphasis but because if I write more than a few words in the reply window when using my iPad2, WG crashes. To get my thought posted above, I broke it into pieces in hopes it would work. And forget posting pix from the ipad. Can you post pix from yours?

Also, I'd say, take insects out of fridge one at a time and shoot quickly as the bugs will move alot faster as they warm up!

My father used that technique to photograph grasshoppers back in the 1930s!
