At a fair distance, afraid to approach closer. Flash gives a bit of a double image in some. This camera doesn't seem to do fill flash. I've since figured out that to avoid this I must switch from Aperture to Shutter priority and use a short shutter speed. But all that takes time and a lot of these bugs are camera shy, disappearing in an instant. Hope springs eternal on this 'bug'; just lounging on this grass-seed head and helpful to strike different poses after moving to the sedge stem. The 4th image may not add anything additional.
