  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    That's a wonderful set, but gotta say #5 is top notch m8.

    Thanks Paul. I got lucky with that one. When I first saw it the fly was on the edge of a leaf, parallel to the ground. It was astonishing to see that big droplet on its head - I would have thought it would have dropped off. I tried taking some shots, straight down from above, but it was really awkward to reach and none of them worked. It then moved to a more normal, and much easier to get at, position, and stayed there for ages so I could take loads of shots.

    BTW, someone at dpreview just asked about the Laowa 60mm macro. I pointed them at your images here and your review at ephotozine. My post at dpreview is here.

    Another great set. The one with the drop on its head is top draw.

    Thanks Nick.

    Kevin from LAOWA was chatting briefly with me via messenger when I got up today, but I assume he has now gone to bed... :)

    Paul.

    EDIT: @GardenersHelper Kevin in Hong Kong is ringing me this morning to have a chat about something... Interesting...

    Thanks Icy, Alf, Leroy. I definitely got lucky with the droplet on its head.
