Thanks.

From an insect perspective, I noticed they were hanging around the back of house, hovering on occasion (for 2-3 seconds), before darting off. If I stood still, peaking over the viewfinder (because they would dart off at the slightest movement), they would get within 1-2m from me. But sometimes, they would get within 30-50cms from the lens.

I had the twin macro flash setup, plus the 5D3 was set to 6fps, and in AI Servo mode. The tricky bit (from a camera perspective) was trying to get enough focus points to pick up on the fly, and not the background. Sooooo many out of focus / trees in focus shots. Thankfully, it's digital, not film ;)

Just tried this in dim lights, no flash, handheld, so had to shoot wide open at about 5 inches (with ext tube) and DoF  of less than 1mm.

Hi K-amps!

Really nice idea and good result. Especially for that circumstances.

The only thing I am thinking about is the WB and the color tones.
They look pleasing but a little bit off, maybe due to the light.
But nothing that must be changed. It's more about preferences.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.
