Thirsty Shield Bug III by dalantech
Thirsty Shield Bug III
My wife spotted this shield bug in the kitchen and I moved it outside and put it on a flower. It must have been thirsty because it started drinking rain water right away.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 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.

Winter Weevil Series 1-2 by dalantech
Winter Weevil Series 1-2
It warmed up to 13C today and I found this Weevil sunning itself on the sheets that were drying on the clothes line. I moved it to my patio table for some "studio" shots, coaxing it onto of an orange so I could get a low angle for this portrait.

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.

Winter Weevil Series 1-1 by dalantech
Winter Weevil Series 1-1
It warmed up to 13C today and I found this Weevil sunning itself on the sheets that were drying on the clothes line. I moved it to my patio table for some "studio" shots. Notice how its legs are tucked into its body -it's a self defense technique. The slightest little bump will send it tumbling. Ladybugs will do it as well, so you have to be very careful when shooting them in the wild. Very easy to bump the foliage that they are on and send them into the underbrush.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
