    1. Thanks Robert! I took about 8 shots of this bug, and only one was clear enough to post. I am thinking I may need to get acquainted with the manual focus on my L830?

      1. I had a similar fellow haze me the other day in the garden, finally nailing me on the back of the neck. Perhaps the ‘hand rubbing’ gesture is delight at the prospect of a meal…
