Thanks. Praying Mantises are really amazing the way they catch butterflies/moths (and then eat them).

Yes. I had the DA 35 macro before and while it is a great lens, bugs just tend not to stay still enough for you when you get close enough to do 1:1 macro. The extra working distance with the D FA 100 really helps with the "moving critters."
