Since you said scary, I offer a true one (to me).
Here it is:
QUOTED IMAGE
A dragonfly or fly

What it fears me is the story behind, the fungus (external link) control the mind of the infected insect to climb up higher in order to spread spores later more efficiently.

Definitely! Are those spores growing out of it?


If YOU like the photo, that's all that matters!

I found this little guy on our Tibouchina (external link) shrub this morning.

I found this Lynx Spider having breakfast this morning, in our back garden.

Then I saw this insect near a couple of water drops and it didn't seem to mind my somewhat clumsy efforts if pushing the foliage away to expose the insect.:-)

Both with Canon RF 100mm F2.8 L IS USM macro lens.

Cheers

Dennis

Great stuff, Dennis. I'm wondering if that insect (Lygus?) might be the adult version of the one you posted earlier.

Hi Ed, thanks for your message and suggested ID, I appreciate it.

The insect was located on the same plant so I reckon you are right - good pick up.:-)

Cheers

A Long Legged Green Fly taken this morning in our back garden, my sole image from this morning in the rainy, blustery conditions.

One of the few that was brave enough to tolerate the conditions.:-)

Taken with Canon RF 100mm F2.8L IS USM with a 3rd party Extension Tube.

Cheers

Dennis

Thanks Ed, I’m guessing that if this were a “standard” sized fly, compared to my previous shots using the Canon EF 100mm L Macro lens, then this shot with the RF 100mm L at 1.4:1 plus a 25mm Extension Tube should be close to 2:1.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Here's a close up of the head of a Lynx Spider with the same combo, EOS R5, 40mm Extension Tube and RF 100mm F2.8L IS USM Macro lens.

Tough work holding the rig steady at approx. 2:1 and trying to keep the insect in frame.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Incredible detail. Looks like it could impale prey with those spines.

It looks good at f/11! (Flirting with diffraction softening.)

Gotta get me one of those tubes.

Thanks Ed, the spider would need reliable proprioception and spatial awareness to avoid impaling itself on all those spikes.:-)

My Novoflex BAL-EOSR Auto Bellows for Canon RF-Mount, a compact macro bellows for Canon RF mount mirrorless cameras that retains full electronic coupling, arrived after lunch so I fitted them, and they are just about portable, and hand hold able in still air, braced on a knee.

I found the Lynx spider again and popped off 3 shots, manually moving the AF point to the head, FG, and BG to attempt a stack later in PS CC.

It worked reasonably well but I had a still subject and was able to kneel down and brace the rig on my knee.

#2 is a full res 1600x1600 crop at an estimated 3:1.

Canon RF 100mm F2.8L IS USM Macro lens (not yet in database).

Cheers

Dennis

Well done! Wow, that bellows is a substantial piece of equipment. Interested in seeing more pics with it. Looks like you should be able to shoot at around 3x with it and the 100mm, and that is challenging shooting.
