Amazing pics. Love the last one, which is a leafhopper, by the way.

I love the torsion on the wings of this Lacewing.

They are all great - but that tiny “plant hopper” in flight is a remarkable capture! Great work!

A wonderful composition in the last picture.
The sharpness of just antenna, eye and legs has a strong effect.

I understand there is an important factor of luck involved. But you have to work hard to give luck a chance.

Thanks so much. That's correct, it's all luck beyond increasing the probability of success in the front end when designing and building the equipment.
