Re: Update

I added this comment to Josh's post of a few days ago so just thought I'd bump it up as it were:

Hi Chaps,
I agree too, it's not actually as easy as you think photographing moths and I'm only now feeling relatively pleased with my results. A tripod and a remote release are very important/essential. Tony, could you be so kind as to give us a few tips as your photos are great (and your's too Steve!), also what lens do you use and do you use a flash at all? With regards species added to the blog, personally I'd like to see this become a reference for all species encountered in Kent, obviously we don't need duplicates of those already featured (check the labels down the right hand side) unless the specimen you have a photo of is a different form or highlights the variability in a species.I'm more than happy to provide the bread and butter whilst Tony (and hopefully others) can make us jealous with their waifs and strays!
