The dark side - I've been there

Took me some time to take shots again. And then too much to do to PP the pics. These are some from two weeks ago.
This was a very, very cooperative individual of a brilliant emerald (somatochlora metallica), as I suppose.

Came back several times, hovering long enough to get focus. :D:cool: And sometimes too close for the MFD (1m) of the 100-400 II :eek:
Even with f/11 and f/16 I had problems to achieve enough DOF. But it was a great experience for my two friends that were with me, too.
And I have one for those discussing about banking, too. ;) (Although a bit OOF respectively shallow DOF)
Some more to come later.





What’s in da box?

Lovely colours and head nicely focussed. Did you use the R5 and did it pick out the head?

Don't have my R5 yet my friend. Still in the queue. This is an older shot that I took with my 40D and the non-L version of the Canon100mm f/2.8 macro.

I was out chasing bees and Cabbage Whites this morning and wondered this exact thing - I'm hoping it will and will let you know as soon as I know.
