Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

This is a duplicate post but I accidentally deleted the original. The correct one is posted and comparison are readily made.

EM-1 (manual setting), Olympus 4/3 x2TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, Raynox MSN-202 25 diopters, twin flash, hand-held.

The situation made illumination of the subject difficult and few images were acceptable. The FOV was 5mm wide and cropping to the equivalent of 4 or 3mm has been done.

More Mothflies

Ten days ago I posted some images of these, stating that I though some improvement was possible, probably by use of a smaller aperture. I prefer these images. Elsewhere, problems in identifying the effective aperture due to the use of a supplementary lens have been identified. The lens/TC combination indicated f22.

Here are some shots from late November 2016. These were with my E-M5II 60 mm f2.8 and tubes plus Raynox and my usual Nissin Di466 flash
Alf,

I missed this second set.

The springtail is Biloba muscorum (syn Neanura muscorum). It gets the genus name from the two posterior sweiilings.

The mite is a predaceus one, a female Pergamasus.
