Technique: I found this European Wool carder bee snoozing on a Lavender stalk before sunset and woke up early the next morning to photograph it. I placed an artificial flower in the background to keep it from being black.

Note: I set out to document how solitary bees sleep -really wanted to show the mandibles clamped onto a plant stem. So I shot from a low angle, focused on the mandibles, and then rolled the opposite end of the frame deeper into the scene to create the illusion that there is a lot of depth. I'm mentioning it because inevitably someone will pop into one of my threads and compliment the MP-E 65mm macro lens as if it can somehow overcome the laws of physics and provide more depth of field than any other macro lens at the same Fstop and magnification. It can't...

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 with highlight tone priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 2x to 4x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering with -1 2/3 FEC). These are single, uncropped, frames taken hand held.

Great details in the Jaws and Eyes. The false dof working well as an illusion. Nice to hear the explanation of the technique too.
