Fototriss 183 – Wee critters

Today’s Fototriss theme – Småkryp – can be translated in a number of ways; bugs, creepy crawlies, wee critters… and it gave me an opportunity to go out and work with the 50 mm standard lens and extension tube. You can get really nice close-ups of tiny things that way, but it sure isn’t optimal when the critter in question is moving around. The extension tube rather severely narrows the focal depth, and if my standard lens has a fault, it’s that it isn’t the fastest of lenses when it comes to refocusing…

So, my response to this week’s challenge is perhaps not the most astoundingly original one, but it was a very good excercise 🙂

As usual, please click an image for full appreciation! Then use arrows to move between pictures.

    • Åh, man tackar för identifieringen! Visserligen var han väl lite fräck som käkade på min potatisblast, men den ska ju ändå grävas upp nu… 🙂 Småkryp är helt okej – så länge man vet var de är…! ,)

  1. Tycker du gjorde ett utsökt jobb med ditt objektiv som är aningen långsam;-) Tycker färgerna är helt underbara faktiskt. Å tänk hur många plika insekter det finns som jag inte haft en aning om. En toppen triss helt enkelt!
