I saw this waspy thing eating a fly on the deck railing today so I went and grabbed a camera and threw the macro on, got one shot off and he flew away. Just wish I'd been at f8 instead of 3.5:wall-an:

For a handheld macro shot I think you did very well. Can you provide more lens & camera settings if you know them? I am very interested in macro but can't seem to get it right.

Great shot for a quick capture. The detail looks good to me and the depth of field works as well. Well done.

Nice capture, especially considering the circumstances. Sure f8 would have been nice, but then adjust shutter/aperture/ISO, and then, would it still be there??????
