Truly amazing. Photography and fact they let you near.
Obviously used to your presence.

Must be satisfying to see them and be accepted so close.

Wonderful shots!

I am intrigued by the focus assist (and don't have an EOS R). Is there an AF point that you place on the subject? And then the triangles do their thing? If so, isn't it hard to keep the AF point where it is supposed to be?

I had the rear articulated LCD Screen facing me and with this manual focus only lens, the Single AF Point displayed two White Triangles either side of the AF Point.

If you are extra or intra focus, the Apex of each pair of White Triangles points either up or down, so in theory you know which way to turn the focus ring.

As you approach focus, the 2 White Triangles begin to converge. When you hit focus, the 2 White Triangles overlay each other and turn into a Single Green Triangle.

I was able to "Tap" the rear LCD to place the AF Point in different positions and the Triangles then appear at the new AF point location.

Here is a link to a Canon USA Youtube Video that demonstrates this.

At high magnifications you really need to have the insect resting as I found it impossible to chase a moving insect.

Cheers

Dennis

Very nice trio of shots, especially IMO the grasshopper shot.

This caterpillar is of the Limenitis genus (Admiral butterflies). I think it looks a bit like Oscar the Grouch.
