The 760

Whilst my Canon 5D mark Iv went for a sensor clean, I used my back up camera ( it used to be my main one before I got the 5D – on of the the reasons for getting the 5D, is that the full frame on the 5D helps fit in some subjects in the frame when using my Canon MPE-65mm eg Small Butterflies ).

However, the Canon 760D is a great camera in itself – you don’t need a mega camera to take nice macro shots.  And with its crop sensor – it does have the additional advantage of making things look even more magnified when compared with a similar image on the Canon 5d ( without cropping).

Anyhow enough waffling about cameras – onto the results.

Let’s start with this rather cool Robberfly that I found feeding on some prey that I found on a bridge handle.

Then this moth – which looks very much like a twig.

And I managed to get a Damselfly face shot, this along with all the above taken with the Canon MPE-65mm 1-5x macro lens.

Whilst these relations, I took on the Canon 100mm Macro lens.
