Trying out techniques for shooting Insects in flight-10:

after much effort I came back to an older technique, using just full sunlight, the flash not being strong enough. The Zygaena filipendulae ( Six-spot Burnet. Zygaenidae) was done that way.

The problem: you have to crop the image a lot, so using 800 oder more ISO is out of the question. You need high speed (1/2'000 sec here) because you follow the flyer with the telelens.
