Hi Laura: My post did not show up on this shot... but my liked and fav showed up... go figure as this has happened before. I am so pleased you got a well deserved Spotlight for this shot.
He is adorable and those pesky pests really add to the shot.

Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear cub is being tormented my hundreds of flying insects. I had to feel so sorry for the little guy. To me, his expression says it all! I hope you enjoy him. Probably best viewed with the plus sign.

This shot was taken with my newer camera, a D 610. After seeing the insects and their individual wings, I am so happy with the results. I used my Sigma 150-500 lens. I am happy how it is working with the higher ISOs.
