What struck me first about this image is the light -the way it plays across the petals and adds strong contrast to the stem. Light is o...

Carder Bee Series 1-2 by dalantech
Carder Bee Series 1-2
Looks ferocious, but these solitary bees are quite docile.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: Check out the video youtu.be/vJXQ61hKoiA

Carder Bee Series 1-1 by dalantech
Carder Bee Series 1-1
I found this Carder Bee (which seems to be a wasp or hornet mimic) snoozing in my Lavender.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (almost 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: Check out the video youtu.be/vJXQ61hKoiA

21 Spot Ladybug on Sage by dalantech
21 Spot Ladybug on Sage
Very tiny ladybug, and I think that's an egg in front of it (not sure what is is though.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (3.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX (+2/3 FEC no Kaiser flash shoes). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: My wife spotted this ladybug that's only about 2mm long while gardening. I shot it with an artificial flower in the background, and the haze around the edges is natural -due to the fine "hairs" on the Sage leaf.

Almost Awake by dalantech
Almost Awake
Not long after I took this frame the bee decided that it had enough of me and the camera :)

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 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.

Technique: I went looking for something to shoot early in the morning and found this bee snoozing in one of my Lavender plants, but it was 21C and it didn't take long for it to get active. Shot with an artificial flower for the background.

Tree House IV by dalantech
Tree House IV
Another angle of the Red Mason Bee from Tree House III. Sadly this little guy is probably gone now since the males only live long enough to mate. The females are busy building nests in the same tree through, so I'll see his offspring next year.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 1.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX (-2/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: I had to camp out in front of this tree, early in the morning, for quite some time before the little guy got use to me and the camera. We played a lot of "Bee-Ka-Boo".
