[ Edited ]

Have you captured an awesome macro photo? Post it here and share the story behind the shot. Be sure to include the Canon gear you used. This photo was captured with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens at f/5, 1/160 sec, ISO 100.

This was taken with my Rebel XS and EF-S 60mm Macro lens.

f/16, 1/60th of a second ISO 500

It was really just a snapshot, saw this guy and ran and got the camera and got down on my belly to get the picture. I really like it because of the bright blue patch on his nose? snout? muzzle?

We'd say it looks more like a nose. And it is quite blue, a pretty blue at that. Definitely not something you notice everyday, but it is indeed a small world.

Nice, Ed! It's really amazing how much more detail you captured thanks to the filter. It really pulls us into the world of your subject. Do you mind sharing the settings used?

Not too bad for a guy who is basically a black & white street photographer. Smiley Happy

 

1/8 sec @ f/16; ISO 400; +2/3 EV on a tripod obviously.

Beautiful capture, Diverhank! We love how you used shallow depth of field to draw focus to the bee. Great work!
