Re: Honey Bee on Verbena

Extension tubes with the 40-150 and 300 Pros work a treat for this sort of thing and you can maintain a distance that stops you disturbing the insect (or getting stung!).
Iíve been experimenting using these setups with handheld focus stacking: itís a little hit and miss if the subject is moving at all, but itís often surprisingly good even using the in-body jpeg. You can often get a really nice in-focus limit effect if you use full aperture and carefully choose the images to stack manually in post (Iím using Affinity). Iíll post a few when Iíve practised some more.

Too much Oly gear.
Panasonic GM5, 12-32, 12-35, 15. Laowa 7.5.
Assorted legacy lenses, plus a Fuji X70 & a Sony A7S.
