Feeding Honeybee V by dalantech
Feeding Honeybee V
Technique: I used a syringe to place some artificial nectar on these flowers so the critters would have a reason to let me get close. I set the camera to expose for the natural light in the background and had the flash set to E-TTL mode and let the camera expose the subject with it.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/125, ISO 200) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens with 25mm of extension + a diffused MT-24EX (flash head "A" set as the key and "B" as the fill, with the key on a Kaiser flash shoes. +1/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Timid by dalantech
Timid
Technique: I found this small snail on the underside of a flower petal. There wasn't much I could do with it due to the angle, so I flipped the petal over the flower.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I used an artificial flower for the background.

What's Up? by dalantech
What's Up?
Technique: I found this small snail but it wasn't active, so I put a little water on it and it came out to soak it up.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 1.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I used an artificial flower for the background.
