its brilliant ..
and i was interested to know the lens you used for this shot .. Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM .. can you be quite far away from the insects and zoom in .??.
with the macro lenses i have used .. canon and olympus .. i have to be very close to the insect .. i'd love the ability to be a lot further away .. i dont think the mirrorless omd em1 Mk2 lenses have that ability .. :(

and just realized the breakdown of votes and Sara's comment .. very disappointing seeing those low votes .. as this really is exceptional .. :)


Thank you, Iím pleased you liked the picture.

I was about a metre away if I recall correctly. I think I had an extension tube on my lens. This is how Iím able to get a fairly large magnification without getting too close.
