    This is a Robber fly eating a housefly. Observed on the door screen after a few beers @ a BBQ. That's my excuse. :D

    Nice work. very crisp and sharp. I cant quite tell if there is too much tail or too little.

    Well Joe, I like to think the S5 IS is more than a point & shoot, sorta like a SLR without the flippin mirror. I have a Nikon point & shoot that is just that. :D

    Thanks Joe & the rest of you for your complimentry remarks.

    BTW, I blame the tail cut-off on the beer. :blushing:

    AUGH!!!

    Ok... I can't STAND these bug close ups, they give me the willies.
    I also cannot RESIST opening them.
    I also cannot RESIST opening anything that says "GOOD LORD DONT OPEN THIS OR YOU WILL DIE!"

    Please, nobody ever put me in charge of not pressing a big red button. :lol:

    That being said, AWESOME shot Ron. :lol:
