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:-
- 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
- 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.
