Nice Jean, Graham. What's your setup for those shots?

Thanks Mike. I shot these with my Canon 50D, using Canon EF 300mm f4L IS USM telephoto lens plus x1.4 extender. Shooting info. AV from f 7.1 - f 13. Speed was from 1/160 - 1/640. ISO 320 for all pics. Shot in RAW & converted to JPEG. Plus luck of course :lol: Graham

Good set of the bee-fly J&G and lovely to see them.

My goodness, fancy photographing them with that lense - good going.
