Wow
Sweet images. You find the coolest stuff!

Do you get these shots in the field? Do you offer workshops?

 
Thanks!
I'd say ~99% of my shots are in the field. This was one of the exceptions, where I grabbed it to photograph later. I'm mostly self taught with the macro stuff, but I'm going to BugShot this week so hopefully I pick up some new tricks ;o)

 
cool, me too
See you out there. I'm a newbie with DSLRs and can't believe what some of you can do in the field, let alone the studio.
