    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Not quite a cute critter. I just found it feeding in my bell peppers. Died with the flavor of the plant in its ugly mouth

    I had one similar to that land on the tomato stakes in the garden. I didn't have my camera but I watched it check it's six a few times then dart up 12 inches to grab a gnat and land back down in a fraction of a second. One of the coolest things I've seen in a while.

    Equipment

    P95Carry,

    What kind of equipment are you using to get those shots? Was that a macro lens?

    Holdcard,

    Camera is a Minolta DiMAGE A1. It is used on auto for these altho I can manually set anything. Main prob usually is autofocus gets ''fooled'' by other items and so hard to get that set. Sometimes use manual focus but with intense sunlight that doesn't help much with screen being hard to read.

    The lens is optical 7:1 zoom which I use at full tele - it also has an option for macro too at full wide and tele but for these shots I rely on just full tele and try and creep in closer while taking a sequence. With macro on, I can get in much closer but with birds and bugs that would usually spook them.

    I take full size pics at 2560 x 1920 and then this gives me an option to crop out the main subject and still have a useable size end result. Some patience involved plus - luck too

    I use a D70 and have a VR lens. The lens made a lot of difference.

    I'm still learning, it's become a serious hobby for us, the wife uses a D50 with all automatic settings. I like dialing everything in myself.

    Were the last ones taken from a tripod or did you hand hold them?

    I use tripod whenever possible, mainly tho for static stuff like guns where I use artificial lighting and manual settings.

    For bugs - subjects that rarely cooperate much! .......... I rely on auto and hand held. I have the ability to + or - the auto exposure by 1/3 stop increments - that is useful sometimes. Rest of final work is processing the image properties on the puter.

    This dragonfly followed a sorta random pattern .. flying for a bit around and over pond, and then settling on either the top of a lily stem or, upper part of a Spirea (spl) bush. Much of time, wherever I was waiting and sweating .. it went to the other spot!!

    Here's a few of my critters... My wife is a vet-tech, and my oldest daughter works in animal rescue... and I'm a life long animal lover... so yeah, we've got a zoo...

    Here's the canines:



    Here's my parrot Alura, she's been with me for over 20 years now...



    Here's our newest arrival, a Molocan Cockatoo named Peaches

    Wiered, I have never seen this thread before! Great pick's all.

    TJ, part Blue Tick, part Huskey so they say. Great dog no matter what the other part is. I love the Arrow on his nose.



    JB, My loyal Chocolate Lab. Best dog I have ever had.



    My other pet, we just chase him around the yard with a paint ball gun!
