cmantx: Great shot, nice light and super sharp. Did you use the canon dual flash?

Thank you. Yes, I used the canon MT-24 ex flash. I had the heads covered with Omnibounce diffusers.

Excellent image. Definitely communicates the concept of territoriality and raises the hair on the back of my neck. Using a relatively long focal length was probably a good idea.

Just awesome. I like the hint of the wings moving and all those delicious details are cool too. Exciting image. I "wish I'd taken that shot" ;)

Thank you Ruth. The only way I get this close to these guys is because they are drunk or in a food coma from eating the fermented fruit.

What a fantastic perspective on this weevil.
Colors, detail, and the angle/point of view are perfect.
