    It is.

    I just wish there had been some basic tecnical info included about
    what camera, lens, strobe, etcetera were being used.

    *perhaps*, but this particular amateur lives with his wife and teenage son
    in Jaroszow, a village in Poland around 30 miles from the city of Wroclaw.
    His day job is being a physiotherapist.

    HTH.

    Which, like your previous answer, is very Holmesian. I.E. full of
    what the author thinks are very clever deductions, but, like the
    novels, reaching entirely fictional conclusions that leave readers no
    wiser than they were before.

    We still have no idea what equipment was used to take the photos *or*
    how expensive it was, Sherlock.

    And if you are indeed too lazy to do that:

    Try reading MY post again, OK? I was referring to the info -or lack
    of same- in *your* posts.

    Giving a URL while not stating what might be found there in reference
    to the question at hand is about as useful as puttings tits on a boar
    hog.

    Right. Where exactly is ther information lacking in this?
    "Being an amateur, nothing too expensive:
    http://photo.net/photodb/user?user_id=5928980 "

    in response to your:
    "I just wish there had been some basic tecnical info included about
    what camera, lens, strobe, etcetera were being used."

    >Giving a URL while not stating what might be found there in reference
    >to the question at hand is about as useful as puttings tits on a boar
    >hog.


    So, if I saw you respond to a query with a link, I should expect it to go
    somewhere totally unrelated?!! WTF?

    According to our hog sex fetishist, I should provide instructions to click
    the links.
    OK, specifically for Twibil (but also anyone else who wants to whine) :

    1. When someone posts a link in response to your question;
    1a) Click it. Good move, as someone you have probably never met before has
    bothered to respond to your question. (Goto 2)
    1b) Ignore it.... don't whine... go away.

    2. Having clicked the link;
    2a) Look around a bit. Good move, as someone who has the knowledge you seek
    has bothered to put it up on the internet. You will find what you wanted and
    be satisfied. (Goto 3)
    2b) Look. See no flashing personalised neon sign saying "Here is the
    information you seek"... don't whine... go away.

    3. Having looked around the site;
    3a) Leave comments for the photographer (in this particular case). Good
    move, as he may actually appreciate the fact that his efforts are serving
    some useful purpose. (Goto 4)
    3b) Be satisfied.

    4. Entirely optional;
    4a) Respond to poster with a hint of appreciation. Perhaps invite
    discussion. Good move
    4b) Respond to poster with a terse "Thanks for that" (or similar). Good move
    4c) Don't bother to respond. Good move, but others may do so, possibly
    showing you to be a bit of an ingrate.
    4d) Blame your stupidity on everyone else. It's NEVER your fault. Way to
    go...

    HTH.
    Regards,
    Sherlock (aka Richard)

    as a P.S. The pics at the link I provided are not too shabby considering
    that they were done by an amateur using not too expensive equipment. It
    really is the skills which matter most of all.

    Thanks George.
    Good to see that you bothered to click through and actually meet the
    specification of IQ>=100.

    Stupidly, I did the decent thing by not directly linking to a specific
    thing. It's one of those annoying habits I have, realising that some
    websites exist solely through revenue from viewing stats. I always figure
    it's best to post the link to the frontmost page. Often, I will post the
    additional links to pages of specific interest.
    However, in this particular case, Twibil asked a specific question. I
    responded with a link to the photographer's pages (which I found using a
    search after reading his pondering). I found pertinent information and
    posted the link. I assumed any NORMAL person who had sought the information
    would follow the link and explore.

    Regards,
    Richard (sometimes confusingly, aka Sherlock)

    He mocked you for being Holmes, because he thinks Holmes explained
    things in such a confused way the reader was left none the wiser. That
    gives you the important clue that he's playing the Holmesian part of
    the stupid policeman who never gets it.

    Almost certainly a macro ring flash looking at the lighting in those
    photos. I wonder how he manages to pre-focus so well in the dark,
    without upsetting his subjects .... yeesh.

    At 3 AM the bugs are probably so cold and in a state of "tranquility" that
    they don't mind his being there. Maybe he shines a flashlight to prefocus.

    Just what I was thinking.

    I think the insects are probably so cold that they are, in fact,
    *unable* to respond to a light, or indeed to any kind of disturbance.
    Still, this sort of work certainly requires more than a bit of
    patience in setting up. Patience that I, unfortunately, don't have.
