    I thought I'd start a thread specifically for insects in flight. It's a whole heck of a lot harder to get these little buggers (no pun intended) in flight than just sitting on a flower and so they deserve a little more respect for the level of difficulty a good image requires.

    Mine aren't as close as those posted here, but I was very surprised they weren't a big blur like most of my in flight shots.
