Back in Black Series 1-2 by dalantech
Back in Black Series 1-2
I usually try not to take images with black backgrounds, but there just wasn't enough natural light to expose the background in this Banded Eye Drone Hoverfly shot.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 400) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens with a 14mm extension tube (~1.4x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Plant Bug
Found this little one early on cool morning and managed to get a few frames before it got tired of me :)

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (~3x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

November Hoverfly by dalantech
November Hoverfly
About 20C today (68F) and we still have Drone Hoverflies.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 800) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I was shading the critter with the sun low and behind me, so the natural light exposed the background and there is just the flash hitting the subject.

Beetle in November Series 1-3 by dalantech
Beetle in November Series 1-3
It's been so warm this year that I found a Junebug in my back yard even though it's November. Same beetle as in the "Junebug Reflection" set.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (3x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
