My wife was in the garden and urgently called me to catch three beautiful beetles. What they are up to I have no idea, but could make a guess...
I used the 24-70 lens with different combos of extension tubes (12, 20, 36) , but carelessly didn't keep track of which tubes I used for different shots! One of these used all 3 tubes (+68mm, probably "close up 1" and maybe even "close up 2"). Tripod too.
1. 3 beetles: 70mm, f/11, 1/250 second, ISO 10000 (!) (my favorite of the three...the red underbelly vs. green shell; aren't red and green complementary colors??? I forget my color wheel lessons)
2. close up 1: 70mm, f/5.6, 1/160 second, ISO 10000 (my 2nd favorite, with the reddish background)
3. close up 2: 62mm, f/8, 1/250 second, ISO 12800 (!!!)
ISO was super high to counter the low-light from the other settings. Lots of noise as a result, so I did some Sharpening and Noise Reduction in LR. A few other LR adjustments too.
Have a favorite? CC welcome as always!
