Hi Joseph, as you asked, I downloaded it and cropped it to what I like. I only spent couple of seconds on it, doing what comes naturally to me. No rhyme or reason.A very real portion of what makes good pictures I've learned from watching here--perhaps that shows how much I have to learn but that's the way it goes.
I like this one a bit. I'm posting it uncropped (jpeg was fiddled with to get it to fit filesize-wise)...
Those so inclined--download this one, play with it some...in any way you see fit (including crop)...repost and if you would, explain why you did what you did.
My own preferred crop (not shown) features the two critters on lookout duty in a much more prominent way; I'd very much like to see what those who post here regularly would do with it...and why.
Thanks for reading.
Remove your sunglasses! I'm sure I posted some back in 2019...becceric--Batman extends his cape here:
"It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me."...one of my favs, actually!
...which reminds me: I haven't seen any bat pix on CR! (I'll bet they're here but I just haven't looked).
This is really good Alan! I'm a detail/sharpness maniac but this has also a nice colors/composition!
Hello Oskar, and welcome to CR. Beautiful series you have there. Especially the hummingbird hawk-moth is brilliantHello everybody! I've been following this site for more than a year now.
I found that if you can get close with e.g. a 100 mm macro you'll get other problems like very shallow DOF.Unfortunately I don't have specialized lenses for all the small subjects. So these pictures are heavily cropped. Nevertheless I dare to post some here.

Seems to be something like this one here:A species i could not identify.
I have something similar here, don't know what it is. I, too, suppose it's from the family hesperiidae.
Thank you very much for your kind words, Maximilian! Very appreciated!Hello Oskar, and welcome to CR. Beautiful series you have there. Especially the hummingbird hawk-moth is brilliant

The pic of the hummingbird hawk-moth wouldn't have worked with such a macro.
So I think your gear is okay, esp. when you can get close to the MFD of your 70-200 and have enough light to close the aperture.
