Tonight it is cold, wet, and a bit too breezy. A quick midnight look in the garden finds only young aphids, loads of hard-as-nails woodlice, and the odd elongate springtail.

I took 3 pics of the latter.

Just about 2mm long, so a fair crop even at 2:1 on the lens...

Very neat, especially with the water drops.

Cheers Richard. This is one of the Isotomerus springies of which there are at least 40 species.....

These are good! I don't think I was ever aware of sow bug eyes. :-)

With all due respect this is the first time I have seen you post a shot that I would print large and hang on the wall, or save to a device as wallpaper. It looks like art, and I think that it is what macro as a discipline needs more of. FWIW, coming from me*, well done!

*Because no one gets to make the rules...

Beautiful bugs, and well taken! The Laowa is working well for you.

Thank you!
This lens rocks if fed with enough light (that I don't have).

So true. Not much natural light @ 2x, even midday. I almost always use artificial flash/light.

This Preying Mantis was taking deep dives into my Lavender to hunt the moths and other insects that take refuge in it. I took this shot by focusing on the critter's mouth parts and then twisted my wrist (the one holding the camera) to push the area of acceptable focus deeper into the top of the frame.

Image taken in Lago Patria, Italy in September of 2021.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F14, 1/200, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to almost 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Sharpen AI and Clarity in that order.

Excellent portrait of my favorite bug. You held a lot of detail for f/14.

Thanks! I was bracing myself on the same area that the critter was on, and the quality of my light helps to bring out the textures in it.
