Thank you Gilma.
I have excellent photo gear, chosen for partly birding (tele zoom 100-400mm) and partly for small animals like insects (macro 100mm). These are the basic tools I take with me on spotting trips. In my car I keep the rest: tripod, flash, extender, remote shutter release and so on, just in case.
This OHM caterpillar I found in one of my Desert Lily plants, I took off the branch and put it on the table, then used macro and camera on tripod...
I do my best to get excellent photos, I want people who see them to feel the same sensation that I felt when I saw the animal live...

Beautiful!!
You are a very good photographer with a very good camera, love how clear your pictures are.
