Thank you.:-)

I think that for this one, the Canon EOS R6 was in "Zone AF" which displays a "White AF Square" in the middle of the VF. When the AF locked onto the Bee, a smaller "Blue Spot AF" box locked onto the Bee and tracked it across the larger White AF Zone.

I suspect this worked as well as it did because the BG was quite dark and the Bee offered a brighter, closer and more contrasty target so the AF was able to track it within the AF Zone - very neat.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Thanks for the info - can't wait to try some of these things myself with the R5 which I ordered at the end of August.

Heh heh, I won't take responsibility for the name! But it is black and white with a bit of red that could be a light if you have a strong imagination. :-D

I found a Lavender Beetle hanging out on one of my Mint plants and photographed it when it paused long enough for me to get a shot.

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

That is quite the weapon that the bug is hiding between its legs! Nice shots.

Finally got out. Sent home due to rain without firing a shot. Saw what I thought was a small shield bug on the very last bush on the trail. Grabbed it to shoot at home. Not a shield bug, but the nymph of a lacewing (I think). I shot 1 for the first time ever about 2 months ago & was shocked to find out they cover their backs with the carcasses of dead critters, molts, & debris to disguise themselves from predators. It sure worked on me. :lol:

The one I found earlier had about 6-10 things on it's back. This one has slight more than that.

Here are a few shot of the cargo in focus. The first one is looking straight down onto it's back. Check out the ant sticking up in the left hand corner. The second one is straight on. The black spot down in front that is out of focus is a dead ant that had fallen off & it was trying to replace it. So I took a shot focused on it's load.

Interesting stuff. It's amazing what goes on in the world of little critters. It is good you explained what these were or we might have dismissed them as trash on first glance.
