Great image of a smashing creature, Colin.
Was this with flash?

Roger.
The more I look, the more there is to see!

Yes Roger, my new toy; a Pentax AF160FC Ring Flash, it is proving a great help! Until recently my bug photography was with the aid of my home made flash bracket; fashioned to reduce the angle of the pop-up flash of my K20D. The problem with that was that the underside of the subject creatures were always in shadow. With the ring flash that problem is eliminated! A very expensive piece of equipment but I am over the moon with it!

Nice shot, Colin. The ring flash is in the first row on my wish-list, I need one.
