    Dave,

    Thanks! You're producing some great shots with that 90mm.I checked the lens out on the net.Pretty wild looking, compared to what I'm familiar with.
    You can't go wrong with a macro lens. Killer sharp optics.

    Looking forward to your next macro shots.

    Still too cold here for much insect activity.I came across the wasp hunting for things to shoot.It was tucked under the edge of an old patio chair seat.

    I've had my fill of flower shots for now........maybe

    That is crazy sharp! Definitely need a macro lens.

    Excellent shot, Jim, really in your face! A good example of the flexibility that flash gives you. Did you have the flash on a stand as it was fired with the STE2?

    Rob,

    I have the flash mounted on a Wimberly Macro Bracket.

    That look a useful gizmo. Something else to get...

    I normally use a studio-light stand if I'm indoors, and if I'm out-doors I get her-indoors to hold it (the flash I mean). I find my STE-2 very useful.

    I really like the ST-E2.Don't have to bother with an off camera cord.
    Here's a few shots of my rig.

    I'm trying to keep the weight down,but if needed I have a mini ballhead I can mount to the flash and get more range in articulation.
