Just do it you know you want to haha
I totally do. Part of me wants to cheap out and go with the 85mm STM lens just to have it, but I know that it'll be worth going a step up, so I might just wait and go with something nice.

Meanwhile... Moo.

Are the fly shots taken in a studio set-up or in nature. Just wondering how you get set up.
The recent shots including my last shot where taken in nature. I find a nice spot in the shade and sit near flowers that seem to have a nice composition and wait for the bugs to come to me.

Impressive! Are those single exposures or stacked? And if the latter: how do you manage that for a rapid moving subject?

It probably helps being in the southern hemisphere being spring and all, going into summer. We're having some nice autumn days here in New Hampshire, but it gets cold at night and most wildlife has either migrated or has started hibernating. Deer and Turkey are a little harder to take pictures of since I live more in the "city" than the country.

The subject needs to be still for a stack to work.. Any movement and the stack will not work. The latest shots are single shots :) Sometimes an insect will give you a few seconds to rattle off a few shots on different focal planes.

Haha surprisingly I have found I do not have to wait very long and I am leaning in getting shots. Here is my setup with the mpe 65mm attatched.

Dust spots to the right of middle bird, below right bird, between left bird and middle bird? Nothing a quick spot healing tool or some rocket blower action won't fix :)

I know. I haven't touched up any of the photos I've uploaded to be completely honest. I'm being a little lazy. :sleep:

Would I be right in assuming that these shots wouldn't be possible without a flash given the narrow aperture and fast shutter speed?
The one up the top in visible light easily possible with a longer exposure. The UV one I did with modified flash. I have not had much experience with the really good 365 uv torches but I would say it is possible to do with one of those with a longer exposure and a really good uv torch.

I bet that a tripod would help. I find myself using it when I take longer exposure shots with a lens that doesn't have image stabilization, like my 50mm pancake lens. I can get away with a lot on the lens with IS. It's not until I start getting to about 1/10s that it doesn't quite work out.

I've always loved those weevils, they're so cool. I also love the fact that they have metallic scales and their undersides are especially pretty.

They're not up to @grunt_408's standards but here's a weevil I found Christmas last year in one of the burned out national parks. I didn't have my macro lens with me that day either. You do get to see the metallic scales on the underside though.

this thread reminds me of my student days in biology when i bought an outrageously expensive camera for my circumstances at that time. it was not a highly professional camera like others at that time. but it took very nice pictures.
the iso intermediates were its strength

So, I have a picture and question for the group. By the way, merry Christmas and happy holidays!

A. The picture is with the Canon EOS RP, 50mm 1.8ƒ Pancake lens @ 10k ISO, 2.8ƒ, and 1/100 shutter, with included exif data.
B. I'm dumping the exif data from this image as a spoiler at the bottom of this post. Are there any attributes here that people would like to see when I upload pictures? I figured that I could just write a script that dumps just the info people care about so I don't have to go hunting for it. I can share the script once I write it for anyone on a *nix machine with exiftool.

The parameters that folks can apply would be sufficient:

ISO, f number, Shutter speed, and focal distance.

Camera and lens for completion.

I just got an external automatic flash for the EOS RP. Wouldn't parameters for an external flash be included on that? There are a lot of parameters in there beyond ISO, aperture, shutter, and focal length that can be controlled. That's kind of why I was asking the question, because capturing just those 4 is plenty easy.
