    Ok exciting day for me as my softbox finally arrived - so off I went to the garden - I did not get much before my batteries died though - so here is what I got:

    Those three shots I got quick as the bee was not hanging around for me - buzzing from one flower to the next - the slower shutter speed was only possible as I was sitting on the ground at the time and so a little less shakey - I know the depth of field needs to be greater in these ideally, but I really like the colours that came out.

    a grabshot - at first I could not see what it was - all I knew was it was moving along the leaf

    Even though the whole bug is not in this shot I rather like it

    Well I enjoyed this and next time I hope to get a chance to use f13 more - this time around it was too dark for it, though I think the old setting of exposure compensation on the flash and low ISO (where I started) were not helping with the lumiquest - so without the exposure compensation and a higher ISO (which I shifted to even with f8 work above) I think I might have a chance at f13 and that greater depth of field :)

    Any comments/crits welcome - thank you

    Way cool! These look great! #4 is my fav. I got my lumiquest about a week ago to use with my 430EX, but haven't had a chance to try it yet (Bugs don't hang out much here in the desert during the summer -- and most sane people head for the hills as well). I also need some time to play with my DIY ringflash.
