I coaxed this lethargic Moth onto a sunflower petal to make it easier to get the low angles that I wanted to shoot from (holding the petal between my left index finger and thumb and resting the lens on my left hand). I placed a drop of artificial nectar in front of it, and then shot it at high magnification while I was waiting for it to wake up and start feeding (so these images are in reverse order). I don't like the way the background came out in this first shot, but I do like the barbs at the end of the proboscis (I've never photographed them before). Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Thanks Linda :)

Half the battle is learning about the habits and quirks of the critters that I want to shoot.

Quite impressive. At f/16 and 2x, you are at an effective aperture of f/48, yet get very good detail.
