Tiger beetle. One mean little predator. Considered the fastest insect on the planet. More info: http://www.minibeastwi​ldlife.com.au/resource​s/tiger-beetles/ (external link)

Would have made a great model for a monster movie! Note how the male has a firm grip with his mandibles.

'Tis obviously the season for katydids. Found this one frolicking in the hollyhocks today in a light drizzle.

I was happy to have a decent result from a little lighting experiment, too. More on that later after a bit more experimentation.

This Swallowtail Butterfly was on my driveway and couldn't fly :cry:. Looked like a good excuse to play with macro photography :-). 22-shot focus stack of 100mm-L f/8 images. I didn't put much effort into reducing the stacking artifacts :oops:. I was using my Yongnuo Twin Flash and custom modifiers.

The butterfly's loss and your gain. Interesting closeup of it.

Was this a manual stack?

Howdy Archibald,

Yep, it was a manual stack. I was using my manual RRS focus rail and giving it a 1/2 turn (1.25mm/full rotation) between shots. That calculates out to about 14mm (~1/2 inch) of total coverage across the front of the butterfly. Although there are a number of ways to do a stack with electronic control over the lens/camera focus system and some really nice electronic rails, I haven't gone that route yet :-).

Thanks for the info. Manual stacks work great and yours worked real well.

I was trying to get some head shots at five times life size of this lethargic Sawfly when it woke up and started feeding. The framing was just too tight at 5x to get the critter's mouth parts, so this is one of the better shots.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 4x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, +1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Nicely done, very sharp. Interesting that the face is covered in pollen but not the eyes.

Why second curtain?

Thanks :)

Pretty common for critters to clean their eyes. I have my flash set to second curtain as a precaution. Sometime I'm mixing natural light and flash, and if there's enough natural light for the sensor to record then I want to freeze any motion at the end of travel because I'll still have a usable image. Without second curtain sync I'd be sending any shot with registered movement to the recycle bin.

Brilliant pics. I am very jealous!

I could be wrong, but if you want help with the ID, I think the Robberfly is Promachus hinei, and Ailanthus Webworm Moth. Nice shots, you must not be far from here, since you keep posting critters from my area.
