p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Lantern fly of Malaysia


Finally, after slightly more than 3 years, I found an adult of this species! 4 hours and 300 shots later, here are a few selected shots . Oh...about 400km of driving (two ways) too!

All 9 species I have can be found here: http://orionmystery.blogspot.com/2011/03/lantern-bug-lantern-fly.html

Zanna sp., not sure if it's Z. terminalis or Z. nobilis?

I didn't do any IQ comparison on IQ degradation but I am happy with the IQ i get with 1.4x tc on, plus I love the extra reach and working distance i get.
