    Really nice shots! Flying insects are so hard to frame and focus. You did a great job.

    Apart from the flowers one, it was all NEX-7 with 18-55mm kit lens and a polarising filter

    (EDIT: Should mention the flowers one was with a Miranda 135mm f/2.8)

    Uploading some more shortly, thanks all!
