I stopped at Lago d'Averno and photographed this Violet Darter in the heat of the day. I know the habits and quirks of this species, so it's not too difficult to get right on top of them even when they are actively hunting. At life size my flash is at the maximum distance that it will get from the subject, so this represents my worst case light quality.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to 1x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (E-TTL metering, -2/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I post I used Topaz Sharpen AI, Denoise AI, and Clarity in that order.

Wonderful light and framing!

I think that lens performs really well wide open too.

Wow, That Violet Darter is a beautiful creature. In fact I think it is the most beautiful DF I have ever seen, and great shot as well. Congrats.
