Had a little while to play in the garden today, managed to get a few.

This one was on something hanging from a strand of web and spinning and blowing in the little breeze that was blowing, I was surprised I got it at all tbh

Not sure but I think this might be a robber fly

You make it look so easy but the shutter count tells the truth there Around 15-20 shots for every keeper, right?

Not really Haris,
it doesnt tell the whole story, on the first one I took 1 shot before it flew off, the robber fly stayed put for ages and i took about 20 shots, of which about 10 are as id want, only posted 4 as they are repetitive, The dung fly I took around 6, with 4 being good enough for me, as it didnt move there was no point in posting 4 the same, I took 2 of the fly and prey, this one being the best, the click beetle I took 3 with this being the best and the fly I took 3 of as well, There were other dung flies and flies and beetles that I shot but they look fairly similar so I saw no point in posting them. I can if you want though.

Its far from easy though, dof is so so shallow with the K1

I'm not, generally, into macro bugs, but that first one is quite the stunner!
