  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.

    More from the backlog. These were captured last May with my FZ200 with Raynox 150 close-up lens and KX800 twin flash, using autofocus at f/8 (equivalent to f/45 on full frame) and 1/1600 sec. The raw files were processed a couple of days ago using DXO Optics Pro, Silkypix and Lightroom.

    These images are taken from a 29 image sequence of 1300 pixel high images in this album at Flickr.

    Perhaps these are Speckled Bush Cricket nymphs.

    #1 There it was, minding its own business ...

    #7 ... and ... ? ... do what? Have a look at the intruder's left antenna, all bent around.

    #8 Now it is the right antenna that is curled up. What is it up to?

    Looking at your macro kit I noticed there's a vital piece missing from mine, a pair of knee pads!

    Thanks for the comments. My apologies for not responding sooner. I've been having a rest from photography for a month or three.
