Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Hi Peter -

I originally had this butterfly shown on our sister site dpn.com as a Painted Lady and only after a great debate with another I accepted the fact I must have got it wrong and yesterday corrected said mistake on dpn.com and said it was a Red Admiral! Now to edit the latter one.

I feel quite relieved at having your expert knowledge put to the image and I had got it right the first time.

Thanks so much for the comment and correction.

Regards. Barr1e

Large numbers of Red Admirals were battling against the strong winds today but this Speckled Wood caught my eye as it sunned itself amongst the fallen leaves.

E-M1 II and 300mm f/4.

A Tachinid Fly, Dexisoma caninum
This species is an endoparasitoid of the Common Cockchafer. Apparently, this relationship has not been recorded in the UK.

This was photographed on 1 July. I had forgotten about it. I suppose I was hoping to get more, and better, shots but I never saw it again after this, my first encounter.

EM-1, Oshiro 2:1 60mm macro, twin TTL flash.

The stereo is crosseye

A lovely Comma Barrie, it is great to see them ready for winter in such wonderful condition.

I saw a beauty yesterday too.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Here's a slightly sharpened version of the highest crop dragonfly shot in my other cropping thread. Taken with the 40-150 pro plus 1.4TC as recommended Peter.

I just skipped over to see the full range and agree it is stunning lens when it is right. And a 100% crop is very possible. I wish I had the extra mega pixels that you have now too.

Dragonflies tend to allow you more latitude than butterflies for missing the point of focus in my experience. It is about the planes of focus and anatomies, dragons tend to sit in a flat posture. With butterflies the crop tends to show where you miss eye focus and have got the abdomen instead - for example.

But it is my top choice lens although the comma above is the Panasonic 14-140 which is good/very good but not so crop..worthy.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Tiny Weevil Cionus tuberculosus on Buddleia Flowers

This one was photographed in July. For a weevil, it walked around rather fast and I was surprised when it finally stood still, permitting a stereo pair.

EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, Raynox MSN-202, at f11, 1/20, 1/20 & 1/60 second at f13, ISO 800, sunlight, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye. The first image is cropped.

Harold

Lovely stereo capture as always.

Thanks. I can't remember what the options were for angle of view but the alternatives may have been even less comfortable to view.
