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 critters mouth parts, so I took a risk and backed the camera out, dialed the MP-E 65mm down to 4x, and brought the camera back in to get a shot. I got lucky and didn't spook critter into taking off. The tricky part is tracking a moving subject when the frame at 4x is only 5.7mm wide by 3.7mm high.

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.

Nice shot. I gotta get the MPE out this season, but I find it hard to work at 4X in the field.

I cheat: I found that critter sleeping on a flower so I picked it and carried it to a park bench where I could sit down. Came down with the flu on that trip and still recovering. No way was I gonna kneel down and try to shoot it in place :)

'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.

Thanks! Yes, it is cropped to about half the width.

I was out with my guide shooting birds, and to save weight, the only lens I took was the 100-400 II. On the walk back through the forest, we found bugs. So naturally I had to do my best to get those shots with the tele zoom. The butterfly posted at the bottom of page 123 was taken the same way.
