    thanks again,, these Dashers are pretty willing subjects, for me at least, I can approach them and get within 10-12" of their face and blast flash shot after flash shot before they finally fly away,, a guy on another site nicknamed me the "Dragon Whisperer" LOLOL Ive had a way with these guys and other insects as well,,:lol:
