Shield Bug Series 1-2
I bought some firewood today and I found about a dozen of these shield bugs while I was stacking the wood.

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.

Feeding Carpenter Bee Series 1-4 by dalantech
Feeding Carpenter Bee Series 1-4
I found this carpenter bee dormant on one of my sunflowers. It didn't take much coaxing to get the critter to climb onto my finger and feed on some honey.

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F14, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I am the finger model.

Eating Pollen Series 1-3
I shot this hoverfly (a wasp mimic) at ISO 800 hoping to pick up some detail behind the flower and it seemed to help for this frame.

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.

Male Banded Eye Drone Hoverfly II by dalantech
Male Banded Eye Drone Hoverfly II
You can tell it's a male because the eyes are touching -females have a gap between their eyes.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
