Soap Bubble Abstract Series 1-5 by dalantech
Soap Bubble Abstract Series 1-5
Just a bowl of water, some dish soap and cooking spray, and a straw to blow air into the water to make the bubbles Then I went looking for interesting colors and patterns. In post I processed this shot in the same way that I'd process an insect photo, but I pushed the saturation and contrast more -insert something about artistic license here... ;)

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 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.

My cats stressed out this lizard so bad that it paused for several minutes. I managed to get a few frames off before it got active, and it did avoid the cats :)

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

Have you ever been stung by one of these creepy critters?

I have photographed honeybees on their comb several times without protective equipment without getting stung. But one time the girls just didn't want me getting close and they tagged me twice. But that was several years ago and I've shot a lot of bees since then with no issues.
