On Saturday I paid a visit to Stoborough Heath NNR near Wareham, Dorset, with a view to hopefully finding some bugs to macro.
Being only March there was not too much about, but searching around the gorse I came across some tiny weevils. I took several shots of them and the best 3 are shown below. The weevils themselves were about 4mm long. All the shots were taken with a Canon 50D and MPE-65mm. Flash from the MT-24ex was used in manual mode at about 1/16th output as far as I can recall.
Single shot of Weevil on gorse. Taken hand held.
Another Weevil on a Gorse flower, this one again taken hand held.
This shot of the weevil is a stacked combination of 2 images. These were taken using a focusing rail, as I still am only just starting with stacking techniques.
Lastly this Spider and its prey is also a stacked image. There are 7 shots used here to make the final result. Tripod and focusing rail were used to aid the stack, with the patient and still spider.
