There was a male sleeping in my Lavender off and on for over a week -took an insane number of images.

Tech specs: Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F10 to F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (from about 1.5x to 5x) + a diffused MT-24EX. All of them are single, uncropped, frames taken hand held.

Technique: For the most part I'm shooting early in the morning and taking advantage of the cool temps to slow the critter down. Once it becomes active I carefully transfer it to a Daisy and shoot it until it flies off. The first frame is a female and she gave me all of about five minutes to photograph her, and the rest are a male. The little guy is getting old and has been sleeping a lot.

I've spent several years wrapping my head around what the MT-24EX was doing, and figuring out how I could bend it to my will. Still making improvements...
