    DPR, is this with just the tammy or did you have extension tubes too? You're in there close. Also, what are you lighting this with? It turned out wonderful.

    No I don't own extension tubes. I'm finding my DOF is too shallow for my tastes often around 1:1. So I'm playing around with being a bit further back and using digital crop to increase my DOF.

    I'm still so new I have to experiment and find what I like. Instead of digital cropping I could try a smaller aperture but as Rooz warned me I do find I'm not as sharp if I go too small on the apperture either.

    Re lighting she kept crawling inside the bundle of leaves I pulled off the bush so I shot through surrounding leaves into the centre of the bundle where she was.

    On cam pop up at -0.3 and one SB600 firing in from 90deg through a gap in the leaves. Manual 1/350 sec (since I handhold) and F16 for some DOF but still being sharp.

    nice looking insects. Rooz how'd you get such a shallow DOF? Did you have some 1800mm F/0.5 lens laying around somewhere?

    Also for the rest of you... are you wearing full body armor to shoot some of those insects "just in case" or are you using 1200+mm telephoto lenses?

    shallow dof is your friend and your enemy with dslr. the majority are at f9, 180mm. its very easy to get suh a shallow dof, even with a 50/1.4 at 1.4 the dof is very limited indeed.
