Beetle Covered in Pollen by dalantech
Beetle Covered in Pollen
I found this female beetle eating pollen while mating. At least he bought her dinner... ;)

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (5x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: I couldn't get a frame with both the male and the female's eyes in focus (they were too far apart and at an odd angle) so I cranked up the magnification and took a portrait. Always look for another composition if your first idea doesn't work.

Wool Carder Bee Series 1-6 by dalantech
Wool Carder Bee Series 1-6
Going back to my normal high magnification, high Fstop, macro with this shot.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 5x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

I placed the Lavender stem in a small wood clamp, set it on my patio table, and then rested the lens on the table as well to help keep the scene steady.
