I has a hibiscus by fiathriel I has a hibiscus by fiathriel
Some of my spiders


Super bug mission that I'm on isn't conducive to winter, there isn't many around. This is my first attempt at a bug macro (after doing the spiders).

I know this is boring to some but I love reading descriptions of macro shots and most users never write them:-

1. Tripod - Manfrotto tripod really pushed into the ground but was still tipping due to the silly angle, so I had to keep my foot on one of the legs

2. Lighting - It was daytime but the sun was setting so not much light.

3. The lens & settings - Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM. Bumped up the ISO to compensate for the lower light.

4. The model - A "Cotton Harlequin Bug" or "Hibiscus Harlequin Bug", a female I believe, a form of stinkbug. They feed on the juice from hibiscus and cotton. She was about 2cm long. These colours are real on this bug and very pretty.

Thankyou, I'm interested but I'm thinking my spider "I has a spindle for you" is a much better shot, now I'm confused!
