    The last one is best since it shows the best detail in the face. The others it looks like you are focused on the branch.

    If the wings weren't clipped it would have been great, but then, I can't say that I can shoot a moving bug any better ;)

    I agree the last is the best use of what depth of field and focus you had. Its always tricky getting the focus spot on, but you did it in the last shot :)
    If you are using a good flash you could probably us a smaller aperture to get more depth of field into the shots and still have good exposures.

    also if you place img tags [​IMG] then the internet will hotlink to the image and we can see it here - though stick to photos under 800 pixels on their longest side for that and give a normal link to larger versions

    tried the img thing, I get a question mark in my post. Think it will work with a flickr account?
