holy crap you got a good lense. how u manage to get a fly to stay there long enough
looks like the bee has " mounted " the plant to lol
whenever i see steadyhands in the thread starter part i know i'm in for a macro treat. you didn't fail to deliver yet again. thanks for sharing.
If you ever decide to run a workshop on macros I'll be the first in !!
I always look forward to seeing your macro work That MP65 is a beautiful lens.
Yeah steadyhands is the seal of quality around here on macros. Great work on the colours and sharpening too
#4! just love the eye-grid
Excellent again Steadhands. Thanks for posting.
Number 4... It's a fly. It's an ugly, ugly fly.
I couldn't stop looking at it! Studying the eyes, the fine hair details. What an amazing pic!
Every time I see the MP65, I wish there was a port to take it under water.
Awesome shots, just stunning. thanks for sharing
Whoa! All outstanding shots. Having made a half arsed attempt at macros myself, I'm in awe of these shots. Just beautiful.
Care to share the details of your rig with us Steadyhands?
Also, was the fly alive when you took that shot?
Thanks for the comments folks.
The first 3 were with a 180 Macro, the last 2 with a MP-E65. All with extra lighting from a MT-24 Twin Light.
The fly was alive, it was a huge blowie sitting on my back deck. I got a series of shots before the lens spooked it. I was seeing how far I could push the Mag. on the MP-E before it flew away.
The blow fly shot fools the eye a bit because of the original size of the fly. You are used to seeing small flies, this one was easily twice the size of a normal house fly. Makes it easier to get a shot though.
The colours on it's back and it's eyes are so amazing.
Awesome job man, seeing really small things blown up big is kool
Nature makes me wet myself (*hugs a tree)
+ 1 !!
#1 is great timing (coming from someone many times trying to capture a bee in flight )
#4 the Eye of the fly is awesome too for the detail
Out of all the shots the spider shot #3 really does nothing for me the rest are great. The macro ring flash certainly appears to be a winner.
Amazing shots, what lens did you use its sharp as heck!
No 4 is spectacular. Like the others said - thread starter = steadyhands = awesome shots
