Thanks. I don't even know what trap focus is!

Using confirmation of focus to trigger shutter firing. You can kinda fake it with AF lenses, or use Magic Lantern for the real thing in MF mode.

Hoverflies usually come back to the same plant when feeding. Just a matter of waiting for them and trying to get them in the viewfinder before hitting them with a burst. What you don't see is the hundreds of shots I delete.

That's what I thought you'd be doing if you weren't doing some kind of trap. Respect!
