    what a wonderful series of photos – do you have a camera w/ one of those motor drives – I think that\’s what they\’re called – or are these stills from a video or perhaps yr just really fast – my digital camera is a bit on the pokey side –

    I\’m using the rapid fire mode on my digital Pentax K10D Cat, I like it alot !

    Oh my!  These are wonderful Steve!  The patch of green in the first few really adds a lot to the image and the reflection in the "yawning" image is terrific  (I think it was a belch though lol)  What a great capture of the transfer of the bug from the courting mate to its intended.  Personally I prefer chocolate, but I suppose a bug would work better on this little gal. lol
    Don\’t you love that rapid fire? nod nod nod
    Hug hugs from cloudy Edmonton…but the sun is starting to break through so I might take "Big Bertha" out for a test drive!  I didn\’t sleep all night thinking what the heck have I done?  I sure hope I can handle the beast.

    P.S.  I\’m so glad you\’ve got a monopod.  It does restrain panning ability a bit but the quaility of the images does benefit greatly.
