Great photos as usual. That lighting diffuser you use is cool.

That Microhyla shot is my favorite.

Great photographs, as always. You talking about a bigger diffuser made me imagine you out there, hiring a couple of guys to carry around spotlights and a few white bed sheets for a giant diffuser. :lol:
