This is a feature of some of the best macro, surreal, some still life, and abstract photography on deviantART that deserve more views and more comments than they're getting.

Mating Red Mason Bees
Technique: It was cool this morning when I found this mating pair, and with both of them feeling lethargic due to the temperature I was able to coax the female into climbing onto my finger. I set the Fstop to 11 and the shutter to 1/125th so that I could expose the sky behind them. The tricky part is hand holding over 2 kilos (4.8 pounds) of camera gear while sliding the lens on my hand to get them both in focus. Lots of deleted frames.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 1x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering). This is a single frame taken hand held. I am the finger model :)
