Overlooked Macro   Leave a comment

I was going back sorting through old photos ( trying to create more memory by deleting excess/duplicate/bad photos) and found a file of unposted macro photos from February.

Never realised caterpillars had wierd “Feeler” type things.

The full Caterpillar

A Colourful Grasshopper (Locust)  to finish the set.

Taken with 7D and a  100mm L macro lens

Caterpillar x 2   1 comment

Went for a walk around the Roma Street Parklands after work this afternoon, with my  usual target being the Water Dragons ( which I did capture some nice shots).

Saw another photographer shooting macro, he was kind enough to point out this flower with these 2 caterpillars on it.

7D with canon 60mm macro lens plus external flash.

If all else fails, there is always “Macro”   1 comment

A wet and miserable Saturday, not nice weather to really go anywhere, but there was the occasional gap between showers of rain and taking opportunity of a lull in the rain..

I sneakily attached by girlfriends  100mm L series macro lens to my 7D together with my Yongnuo Flash and ventured out into the wet yard to see what I  could find.

After scaring off a pretty moth, with a little over zealousness, entered into stealth mode in my quest for bugs.

Not really required for this caterpillar, as he was going nowhere quickly.

Although did find it interesting if you antagonised him (e.g. removed a leaf near him to get a better shot), these two red “feelers” would come out.

Not sure what their purpose is, not overly scarey, even when waved about in a menacing fashion.

Ok, stopped teasing the Caterpillar, and on the other side of the garden, found this small Grasshopper (Locust) slowly backing into the darkness of where the leaves come out from the plant, but the flash gave me the required light to capture him.

I did take a few more, and may process them another (rainy) day.

Cheers Dave
