    Hi DJ,

    what a wonderful shot --- great details --- beautiful colours --- I'd like to see the original --- how much do you crop these images to get SO close? It's an amazement to me, honestly.

    Cheers and have a lovely Sunday,

      Hi Martin,

      Thanks so much again. I don't crop so much. For insects of this size I try to use my 300mm lens on f13 (f9 is sharper but DOF is too small, f22 big DOF but not so sharp, f13: best of 2 Worlds). Then I try to fill the frame with (more or less) the whole insect. You then get much details that are spared as well while you don't need to crop so much.

      Greetings and have a sunny Sunday as well,
