    Well, I went out shooting today and saw so much activity on a group of 3 weed blooms that I thought I would try my hand at a Hover Fly in Flight Shot. Nailed one out pretty quickly and am very pleased. I think this might be my best shot to date just from a sheer difficulty standpoint.

    This was shot with the Tamron 180mm f3.5, 68mm tubes, SB-600. Around 1.6:1 mag. and of course, Handheld.

    Thanks guys. Maybe "most skilled" shot would be better. It's not my favorite shot I've ever done (up there though), but just one of those shots you never think you'll be able to actually pull off at these mags handheld.
