Thanks Christopher!Great shot. Well done.
Thanks Richie, the kit I used for this shot is a Canon 600D(Rebel T3i) with a Sigma 150mm f2.8 macor lens and the yn24ex twin flash with diffusers. I don't ever use tripods for insect macro as it would get in the way and knock branches and stuff about scaring the wee insects off.Yikes!! m8. That's one hell of a shot. Even how the little hairs on the legs stand out. What gear did you use? Like body, macro lens/filters? Was the shot done using a tripod and if so, what type of tripod? I experiment with my extension tubes a lot, but wouldn't mind a macro lens one day. But yeh thats a cracker m8.
Thanks SB, I would have gone for more space behind her as well but there were reeds to the left which made the image feel unbalanced so I cropped them out. I could probably add some more space easily enough but it works for me as is.Beautiful shot, the subject is sharp, the leaf is an excellent perch and the background is creamy. Perhaps I would have left just little more space behind the posterior tip of the abdomen, but it is subjective.
Thanks Taboo, its been hot and muggy with intermittent torrential downpours the last couple days. It rained so hard on Mon that it looked like the rain was coming up from the ground rather than the other way around.Another well done! Going by the light and the shadow of the insect it appears you are getting some nice weather over there.
I thought it was always supposed to be overcast or raining having never been there
Cheers David!Wonderful shot, Ryan!
Thanks, I must say it is one of my better results with these guys as they are not fans of staying still when people are near.Nailed it Ryan! I love the way the shadow follows the curve of the leaf too. Great detail and colour. Well done. It would hold its place in any insect book!
