Thank you all for your images
I spent quite a few days last year chasing bugs and insects around with my new macro lens not as easy as it looks. You’ve got so many factors against you shallow depth of field lighting and very skittish subjects that move just as you get into position.

Eddie.
Bee in flight With a lovely out of focus background and nice vibrant flower.

Graham
Perfect shot of a fly good background.

Mel
Love the tunnel look that the Spider is emerging from.

Daz
From the critter night not sure what it was called. I think in hindsight I should have put a black background up on this set.

John
Well caught Image especially on that sign.

Sue
Cracking image on the third with space for it to move into.

Lesley
Beautiful picture of a vibrant butterfly with a good well lite background

Andy
Fabulous picture of a damselfly pin sharp with a lovely defused background

Mandy
Perfectly posed butterfly positioned on the third with the cracking out of focus background

My winner is Mandy Hull “Comma Butterfly” Over to you Mandy

Wow - thanks, Simon, I wasn't expecting to win with my first entry into the forum competition!

I'll have to get my thinking cap on now for a suitable subject..... will post a new thread later today.
