Picked up a 24"x24" table top studio, just started messing around. The last week we have been taking pictures of all my wife's design work and building her online portfolio. Pretty sure my Canon 20d is under exposing almost everything, we have been +1'ing the past week and getting better results.

Hey guys i picked up a Canon 17-40 f/4L for £150. Should I sell it on and continue using my 18-55mm IS and 35-105mm f3.5-4.5 or Keep it and sell the 18-55mm IS???

While working the pool route today, I rescued numerous bugs as per usual, but this one, was unique, so after I saved it, I snapped a photo with my phone:

About a half an inch tall (roughly 1cm), baby praying mantis.
I also just noticed, you can actually see the water drops still on it, when viewing full size.

Here's some cute critters:

Tiny little red spiders running around this hand rail (1.5-2 inch square railing), my phone really struggled to get them in any kind of focus. I also just noticed, I caught one of the tiny white bugs that were running around too, on the middle right of that pic:


Then at another pool, I found another baby mantis, this one smaller than that orange one I saved previously:
